Snowy River

One might think that life shuts down in Alaska when everything freezes and the snow flies.  Nothing is further from the truth.  Our world opened up when snow machine season rolled around.  Traveling a few miles across the muskeg went from impossible to reasonably straightforward as the terrain changed from summer to winter.  Getting supplies, visiting with neighbors, and getting our firewood became routine, but not without plenty of lessons along the way.  And to top it all off, seeing the dogs racing in the Iditarod just a few miles from our cabin has been thrilling!
