I videotaped one of the two most exciting parts of a dog sledding excursion on my very recent trip up north. It's only a 1 minute video, but is HD so you may want to let it load before pressing play.

Pretty impressive when you consider there are only 6 little dogs pulling two people and a sled up the hill. You too can enjoy this experience by booking a trip for your family at YMCA's Camp Menogyn over President's Day weekend or one of the other winter family weekends. There is a limit based on cabin capacity and there are a lot of repeat offenders in this group. So I hope you don't take my spot! I am hoping that we will be back next year. That will give me a chance to videotape the reverse of what you just saw - leaving the dog yard and going down the big hill to the lake. It is a thrilling ride.
On a side note, I recently came across a "Viner" by the name of Christian DelGrosso. His videos on "Parent Logic" are particularly hilarious. Here are some of my favorites. Note: You need to turn off the mute button in the video, it defaults to on.
You can find out more about him and see his other vines by clicking on the videos.
Thanks for stopping by!
Camp Menogyn is a YMCA camp that is located half way up the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota.
It is where I stayed when I went up for the Plein Air Artists' Retreat organized by The Art Colony in Grand Marais. It was so special to me that I found a way to go back again, the last weekend they were open. I took my Mom and youngest daughter with me. Here are a few images from that trip.
I hope you are enjoying the last days of winter too.
