Dog Sledding in Churchill, Canada - a BLAST!


While the main attraction of Churchill, Canada is the Giant Polar Bears, there are a number of other neat and fun activities. One of those is dog sledding ... and it's darn cool watching the Huskies go flying down a trail pulling people behind 'em.

We were first introduced to the sled dog puppies in the town of Churchill - Steve gets a close-up

The puppies were very friendly and curious
