Dog Sled Ride in Winter Wonderland

mushing dog sled winter vacation activities

A few years ago we decided that once my student loans were gone, we were going to do all the fun, extravagant things that life has to offer.  We paid off my mega amounts of student loans in the spring (read more about that here), so now we are living it up!  We have watched several movies about dog sledding races in Alaska and always thought it would be an amazing thing to do, so while we were in Durango we booked a dog sled ride.  It was just as incredible as the movies make it look!  The team of dogs pulled the sled all through the mountains while the hubby and I took turns driving the sled with the guide and riding in it with the little one.  It was definitely a bucket list worthy experience!

I’ve gotten more wear out of this vest than any other item in my closet this winter.  It’s the perfect piece to provide extra warmth and I love the pop of color it adds to a practical winter outfit like this one.  This exact vest is only $17 right now, so it’s a great time to buy it.

    And congrats on paying off so much of your student loans! I remember the day I made that last payment… it was a good day. Definitely much rejoicing. 🙂
