Hey there fellow adventurers! This is another video post! This time the footage is coming from the dog sledding excursion I took with the Sidekick and our friend Katie a few years back. Check out the og Alaska post! As with anything Alaska, planning waaaaaay ahead of time is a necessity. Part of the trip took us to BEAUTIFUL Girdwood. The town is a ski town, down the Seward Highway (itself a spectacular drive) a bit from Anchorage. We actually had a private tour with Nicolas Petit, a perennial high finish Iditarod musher. This was hands down, probably one of the most awesome things I have ever done. The “tour” I guess? was awesome! There’s a several mile drive up the mountain to an area that is an abandoned gold mine. Nic Petit has a tiny little cabin up there and a spot for all the dogs. He leashed them up to a cart and away we went! AMAZING excursion! Check out the video! It’s a little on the long side, but well worth it! Visit https://www.visitgirdwood.com/explore/girdwood-mushing-company to book!
