Mushing and the Lotus Postition

Cold, sunless weather led to some pretty fantastic icicles coming off the yurt.

Unfortunately, we had a warm rainy spell that melted all of our snow, and now we are back to cold. All of the trails are extremely icy, even for walking. It's back to wood working, playing inside, and holing up until we get more snow.

During our warm spell, Leo made family history by being the first member to guide a dog sled on his own. Some friends of ours put on a junior race, lent us a sled, and let us hook our dogs (and Leo) up to it. Here are a few photos of Leo's epic, 1/4 mile, 1 min journey.

Despite Leo's complacent looks he was very excited about running the dogs, just not about having his picture taken.

In baby news: Kaya has perfected sleeping in the Lotus position.
