After the helicopter dropped us off at the top of the glacier, we had a real adventure.

We got up to about 17 miles per hour on our sled ride!! You have to lean as you go around the corners, and say “gee” to go right and “haw” to go left. It’s a much different experience in August than in March, when the Iditarod run actually happens… it was warm, sunny and short compared to the 1,100 miles they run on the Iditarod.

We were the only visitors up on the glacier along with the dogs owners, so we got to spend about an hour playing with the dogs. These Alaskan huskies are pure muscle, and bark like crazy but they are so sweet and friendly.
