I really, really miss winter.

There are some amazing photos here of La Grande Odyssee, an 1,100-mille (or, 1.100- for Les Francais, though it would probably be measured in km there, so a completely different number of kilometrage) dog-sled race through the Alps. The long exposure image is amazing, and who doesn’t love dogs in booties?

 

Racers must finish in 11 days.  That’s 100 miles each day, if my math is correct.  Scheisse, that seems a bit more extreme than the Iditarod.  But I love the Iditarod first and foremost.

Seriously, I miss the snow and wandering around on my skis in the woods where no one else is.
