    Winter Dog Sledding

    Tired of only getting to yell "mush!" when your mom asks you what you want for dinner? Try out an entirely different context for the word, with this awesome Winter Dog Sledding package from Salmon Berry Tours. Your day begins navigating the snowy roads north of Anchorage -- not on the dog sled yet though. That comes later, after an early lunch in Wasilla, and maybe some photos at Denali. The good stuff happens when you get to Dallas Seavey Racing and meet your crew. You'll get to know each other via traditional canine methods -- they'll sniff your butt -- and then they'll introduce you to the dogs. And then it's racing time! You'll take part in "The Last Great Race" at this exceptionally professional kennel. And you'll finally get to say that magic word. You know the one. The "M" word.
