Right when i arrived back to Thunder Bay in the new year on January 4th i received an email about an Outward Bound Staff Invite to go Dog sledding in the Boundary Waters in Northern Minnesota from Jan 24th to 31st. I figured since i was living in Thunder Bay it wasn’t too far and it just so happened to be my birthday week. I asked around and found a ride down and ride back and made it happen. It was an awesome experience. Beautiful conditions with nice fresh snow and pristine wilderness, making fresh tracks the entire way. It was interesting to be in the student role on an OB course again but it was good and i learned a lot from it and from the great group of people who came. The large amounts of snow made for slower movement as the dogs can only pull so much. We didn’t end up going too far but it was awesome none the less. I even went to help out at the Beargrease race in Two Harbours right after the course. Please see album below for photos from the trip.
