New Year continued; Iditarod, Dogs sleds and ice Skating

Mushers Neave and Stephen taking a dogs sled ride around Glenmore. They did this with Aviemore Musher John Stewart who is about to head off from Aviemore soon to take part in the world famous Canadian Challange 2009, where he hopes to complete his last qualifier to allow him to take part in the 1,150 mile Iditarod in Alaska. Meanwhile Kathy and I managed to catch the last rays of light after first footing by ice skated on a small frozen loch below one of the worlds greatest Scottish rock climbing crags, Cread Dubh. Skaiting on horizontal ice is an amazing change for both Kathy and I, as normally we spend our winters on vertical frozen terrain!
What an amazing day and wonderful start to 2009!
