Who are we
We are a family of 3 who took a break from our routine. Usually we live in Scotland but February to the end of July 2011 we were on the road in North America for 6 months. We are Mark (also known as Dad), Rachel (also known as Mum... and a whole bunch of other names... my usual at-home blog is here) and little h (10/11 years of age during the trip).

Some of you will know how much our h loves dogs... so what better winter activity for her than a dog sledding trip in the snow? We were up near Haliburton in Ontario for a long weekend with cousins and they recommended the Winterdance dog sledding place up there so off we went on Friday morning to meet Siberian huskies, the odd Alaskan husky, lots of enthusiastic staff and some other sledding beginners (like us).
It was a great outing - quite different from what we had expected as it was really hands-on and after only a short training session we were put into pairs and given teams of five dogs and sleds to drive! Mark and h were one pair and h got to do loads of the driving and checking on the dogs. It was a gorgeous day - too warm for the dogs really but nice for us. Definitely one to remember - slideshow photos below and more wintry shots to come soon.
