Scott’s Visit Day 2

with one comment

Well, Day 2 of Scott’s visit went well. Dale, Megan, Jenna, Scott, Dale’s Brother Nick, Sister-in-law Krista, Nephew Kameron and Niece Kate all went to Beck’s Kennels here in Yellowknife for a Dog Sled ride. Kyla was working and I wasn’t feeling the greatest so we didn’t ride. However, I went out to Beck’s Kennels with cameras in hand. I went to a location where I knew the riders would pass by me and as they did I snapped away. I even shot a small video with my Sony a55 (you can see the video here; http://www.youtube.com/user/Apluslee#p/a/u/0/eTFCFDy7jak ). It looked like fun, even at 12 mph they looked as if they were going quite fast. Grant Beck, the owner of Beck’s Kennels, took the group out. The Sled dogs are amazing animals and have done things like pull Grant and his sled 240 miles without stopping. One dog even entered a race where a solo dog would pull a weighted sled by itself. One of Grant’s dogs pulled 1200 lbs and easily beat a Saint Bernard in the contest. Today the dogs just had to pull eight riders and Grant for a total of nine (and the sled) at an average of 12 mph for around 6 miles. It was fun to watch, maybe next time I will feel well enough to jump on for a ride. Here is what our afternoon looked like. Thanks for stopping by and as always, Happy Shooting.
