After lunch, we went back to the Livery to get ski bibs again to go dog sledding. We took a ride to the area where the dogs were kept and met up with our guide. After a quick lesson on what to do, I decided being the rider and taking pictures was best for me. Gary, along with our guide, drove the sled. We had so much fun. My only worry was tipping over and a dog's piss hitting me in the face. Yep, those dogs can pee on the run. At one point my hubby flew off the sled before it almost tipped and landed in a snow bank. He was fine, hopped back on and away we went. The guide made sure the dogs were rested several times along the route. At one point we had to stop because there was a porcupine crossing the road ahead of us. It was a huge beast that moved so slowly. We didn't want our dogs to get a whiff of him because they would run off the road after it with us following behind. That wouldn't have been very pretty. After the porcupine got far enough away from us, we were able to resume. Most of our dogs turned to check out the fat critter. We knew they wanted to chase it down but thankfully then didn't. We got back to the beginning and got to pet the dogs before heading back to the ranch.
