On Saturday, our Northern Lights tour group spent the day dog sledding at Bluesky Expeditions. Our vehicle got stuck on the road in, so Bluesky’s owner, Gerald, hopped on his ski-doo and came and “rescued” us. We rode in a sled full of moose fur to the sled dogs.
Once at Bluesky, Gerald and his wife, Jenafor, treated us to freshly-made wild cranberry bannock and tundra berry jam while they told us about their wonderful sled dogs. After a little noshing and instructions on mushing, we were off…and it was so much fun! What a day to remember.
Oh, and the weather couldn’t have been more pleasant for the middle of winter in Churchill. It was -12 for heaven’s sake!
