My best day with the dogs – and the day I took the picture I’ve used as an author photo since Seven Graves, One Winter took off. On this day, the dogs and I went further than we’d ever been. And we crossed a small lead in the ice – tiny by Greenland hunter standards, but simply huge by mine, and Balto’s, the new kid on the team. Uummannaq fjord is a few kilometres deep – four at its deepest, I think. 🙂
As you can see, Balto wasn’t convinced we were going to make it.
He was rather reluctant.
But on this rather epic, -30C day, we prevailed!
And, yes, I’ve got video. But I’ll save that for another day. 😉
