The Last Week in January

The John Beargrease sled dog marathon competitors traveled all the way to the Cross River this year. Andy and I took a shift on the Moosehorn Road crossing early Tuesday morning, and watched the sun come up over Gunflint Lake as we waited for the dog teams to cross the road.

Shelby skis for the Cook County Cross Country Team. This week she participated in the Pincushion Invitational Varisty Pursuit Race.

Andy, Daniel, Denali, and friends Bob, Erik and Roy trekked into Tuscarora for lake trout on Saturday….Daniel was the lucky jigger. He wishes that he would have put something in the photo to provide a scale for these fish—he thinks they look like they could be minnows. No evidence left for another photo—we ate the tastey guys on Saturday night.
