As many of you know, Sam and Gretchen have a 1 1/2 year old Huskie named Jasper. He comes from Iditarod sled dog stock. This past Saturday Sam and Gretchen were invited to spend the day in Willow, AK with the kennel owners. Jasper is about the age where a Musher starts getting his dog into harness to begin the training process. I think Sam said the day started about 12 deg. and went up to 18.
Not enough snow for the sled. The 4 wheeler is used year aound for training Denali (150 miles away) can be seen in the background at the end of the road Jasper, on right in blue harness.
