I'm reminded of this visit every year when the dog mushing season begins. Hugh, a professional musher, has been a frequent finisher in both the Iditarod and Yukon Quest races. Just this month he finished fifth in the Yukon Quest, a 1,000 miles journey from Whitehorse to Fairbanks, Alaska. Congratulations to Hugh and his dawgs (as he calls them) for finishing such an amazing adventure.
And from that point one I've enjoyed following Hugh and his racing news. No one loves dogs like Hugh does and they are some of the most well cared for dogs you'll ever see.
We invited Hugh to join us for dinner the next night and that's where this photo was taken. That's Hugh in the bottom right of this pix.
No telling when we'll be going back to Alaska & Canada, but you can be sure when we do we'll hope to spend another day with Hugh.
