Today we got tired of waiting and went on a road trip in search for more snow. There’s usually more snow in the inland than on the coast so in the early morning we packed the dogs and the sleds and travelled in a westerly direction in search for the “white gold”. There wasn’t a huge amount of snow in the western parts of the county either, but when crossing into Southern Lapland we found just enough snow to secure an anchor and a nice lake trail suitable for a daytrip. The dogs were happy to finally be out on the trail again – and so were we!

We got up at five in the morning to make the most of the brief daylight hours…
What better way to spend a Sunday?!
Tuisku worked in lead and Thunder and Gemma in wheel. Ahead of us on the trail is Fredrik’s team with Hilary, Wilder and Titan.
The ice on lakes and rivers can be treacherous in the early winter so we travelled close to the shoreline and the dogs only got their feet wet a couple of times.
Tuisku was SO happy to be working in front of the sled again!
Frosty faces at the end of the run.
We completed the trip just before the sun disappeared behind the fells.
The January days are short but the colours are often spectacular this time of the year.
