First Snow

This past weekend has brought the first "significant" snow to the valleys of northern Idaho, around 2 inches. The past week has brought, finally, some seasonably cold temperatures which has been encouraging for our dog teams. Thurs was thanksgiving and was was filled with a feast for both canine and human.

Friday was the cold day and Bob and I took two teams out north of Blanchard ID. The pictures to the right show both teams on the trail, Bob's with Rose and Cody leading and mine with Pepper and Jezebel. We practiced passing did several loops around this area, which is on Idaho Department of Lands, State Forest Land.
