MUSH with Noggin, the Sled Dog - Iditarod Trail

MUSH with Noggin, the Sled Dog!

 (and her human of course)

 Have you ever wondered…

* What does it feel like to ride the runners behind a team of dogs, steering a loaded sled through mountainous terrain,crossing the vast Alaskan tundra, hugging the shoreline of the great Bering Sea?

* What does it take to care for a team of Alaskan huskies? 

* Could my dog be a sled dog, too? 

Musher Karen Land, will answer these questions and more when she and Noggin, the Alaskan husky comes to visit. Karen Land is a writer, public speaker, and three-time participant in the 1000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race as well as many other sprint and endurance races in Alaska, Canada, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Maine. Since 2000, Land has traveled to nearly every state with her Iditarod dog sled, mushing gear, Arctic clothing, and beloved dogs, giving over a thousand school and public library presentations.

“Tethered to my string of dogs, trusty leaders find the trail, together we are free…” 

—from “Into the Northern Lights,” lyrics by Karen Land
