    Loving that pic of yours too; thanks for sharing. That is my kids' favorite winter activity, 'cept I don't know why my son thinks it is so cool to try it with five dogs <grin>.

    Does this shotgun make my butt look big?

    What are some good trails around anchorage for skijouring? The pic from hatchers is just what I am looking for. i spend my time up north and have found myself spending more and more time near the big city and I don't know of any good trails. My dogs are good but the areas we have been going we don't run into many other teams.

    negative. 100% Newfoundland. She loves to pull her little butt off. She has been doing great keeping up with my super long legged husky. She's about a year and pulling sure has come natural to her.

    she really is a beautiful dog but for the life of me I can't get her to show up on a camera. She is so dark and shiny that when you take a picture you loose all her features. The white guy on the other hand is pure alaskan sled dog. He never misses a photo op

    I run out of glen alps into the state park, Rabbit Creek Valley and down by the Campbell airstrip. Occasionally I get out Eklutina. There are dog trails at Tozier Track (in Anchorage) and the Chugiak dog musher have some. there are maps here: http://www.chugiakdogmushers.com/

    any of the multipurpose trails, like the tour of anchorage trail or the coast trail you can run on but those can be busy and I found it easier just to avoid them unless I go later at night.

    I can never get a good picture of a black dog unless I get the sun on them just right. I think about 1 in a 100 photo's comes out ok.
