Mush, Mush

Since I posted about a cat the other day, today I'll post about dogs for the sake of balance. Leaf Rapids was once home to an annual dogsled race; I witnessed at least two such contests. This photo was taken sometime in the early 1970s, possibly before the road from Thompson to Leaf Rapids had even been completed, meaning that travel via dog team may still have been a viable option and not mere entertainment. To paraphrase Neil Armstrong, "Magnificent isolation."
