Northern Exposure

MUSH!!!    Never did I imagine I would be saying those words and driving my own eager (and adorable!) team of huskies through the frozen wilderness.  But I did it!   Earlier this month I travelled to Sky High Wilderness Ranch near Whitehorse, Canada for an amazing Yukon winter adventure.  A week filled with dogsledding, snowmobiling, and lots of beautiful forest and mountain landscapes to photograph along with my friends at Muench Workshops.  Oh, and there were Northern Lights and a breathtaking night sky as well!   And to top it all off, Sky High has 150+ friendly and loveable pups in their kennel, and needless to say, I spent lots of my “spare” time getting slobbery kisses and capturing portraits of those beautiful faces.  Still working through all my images, but I wanted to share these with you.  One afternoon, we rode the snowmobiles out to frozen Fish Lake, and laid in the snow while two of the ranch’s guides, Julien and Morgan, and ranch owner Gary, skillfully drove their dog teams right at us so we could photograph them in action.  SO. MUCH. FUN.   Look at these crazy happy faces!   Gaaaaaahhhh!
