Day one of the weekend event

Mushers from across the United States and Canada descended on a network of trails between Olney and upper Whitefish Lake to participate in the 2012 Flathead Sled Dog Days. Twenty-six teams of dogs divided into three classes – 36-mile 12-dog class, 25-mile eight-dog class and four-mile four-dog class – participated in the two-day race through the Whitefish Mountain Range.

I finished 100 Years of Solitude in my empty high school art room, and the top of my head came off, just like Emily Dickinson said.
