An afternoon filled with snowmobiling out onto Fish Lake in the Yukon Territory and photographing the dogsled teams was exhilarating, not to mention freezing (the high at that time was about -6° F). While we took pics, a bonfire was slowly burning, being readied to warm us up. It lightly snowed, obscuring the sun and tall trees on the mountain. The only sound in the distance was that of soft thumps and sled rails as they sprinted over and sliced the snow-covered lake.
On a snowy day, a lone musher runs his dogs across frozen Fish Lake in the lower Yukon Territory.
"Mush" isn't often used to get the dogs to run. They are ready to run. "Gee" directs them to the right and "Haw" to the left.
