Can you see them? Also, notice the bridge in the background. In a few more weeks, once the snow melts, it's quite likely that the water will cover this bridge. It would be best if we got OFF the river before then!
Here they come! The first dog sled team and their musher!
These bad boys were part of a 164 mile race, from Halstad, MN, to East Grand Forks, and back to Halstad, on Saturday.
10 dog sled teams were entered, and first prize of the Red River Sled Dog Derby is $1500.
And you thought we didn't know how to party around here! Friends tell me that northeast of here is a bar called the Igloo Bar. It's on a lake or river in the Lake of the Woods area. Lots of people do ice fishing in that area, putting a little ice house directly on the ice, heating it, cutting a hole in the ice, and. . . . well. . . fishing! Apparently, sometimes they like to also hit a local bar, also on the ice.
I'd like to see how they get electricity out to it.
In another couple of weeks, all the houses, bars, and vehicles have to be off the ice, by law. Good law, huh?
