When the Wild Calls: Dogsledding with Children by Frog Mom
~:: Frog Mom ::~
For a different winter wonderland experience, dogsledding is the perfect way to enjoy snowy landscapes the way fur traders explored the Northwest. Sitting comfortably in a sled with your child under warm blankets, you’ll feel the wind whoosh by as the dogs follow their leader. If Jack London’s Yukon adventures resonated with you as a child, a team of huskies eager to dig their paws into deep snow is a must-see. We took our girls to Mount Shasta in Northern California for a first experience. It was a blast!
