I shared this "Call of the Wild" Winter outing with the owners, Becky and John in February 2006 and treasure the experience. I found both of these people to be well informed tour leaders. On the way from Crested Butte to the sled departure point, John pointed out interesting local sights and shared information about each. Prior to the dogsledding, we were told what to expect which was very helpful. At one point I became interested in the dogs' action; example, every few minutes, a dog would bend and suck a swallow of snow. John explained that it was called "dipping" and further explained that they were not thirsty, simply cooling their tongues and that is was their version of air conditioning. Because I was properly dressed, boots included, and extremely interested in the adventure, Becky allowed me to ride on the back of the sled with her for a short way. What fun that was and one for which I thank her and cherish. Learning mushing terms only added to the adventure. I did not expect to ride to the departure point in ultimate class and cleaniness..after all, they are in the dog sledding/tour business. I plan to return as soon as time allows.
