We're still waiting for signs of spring this year. I think it was at least a month earlier last year. Of course, that was very unusual. Just a couple of weeks ago, we were endowed with another foot of snow, wind blowing and squalling all around us. Today is April 1st and the river is almost entirely opened up all the way to Indian Lake. Joanna and John each took out a team of 7 sled dogs and ran up to the south end of Kukukus Lake. They both thoroughly enjoyed the trek on such a beautiful sunny day. On the way back they travel along the river which is now opened up. Some of the puppies in training get a little spooked running right next to open water. We feel so blessed to be able to live in such a gorgeous place.
The first two pictures were taken two weeks ago. The last four were taken today.
