You know ya' live in the boonies when........ the mail is delivered by dog-sled.

Here is one of the mushers coming into the mail transfer stop from a run from a nearby town approx. 10 miles away. Not a long distance run, but fun for everyone involved nonetheless. Sorry for the harsh lighting as they came in at high noon.:shrug:

Handing the mail off to the Postmistress.

"You know you live in the boonies when" - how appropriate! .... fantastic shots, but #1 is the outstanding one.

Thank you all so much for the viewing, and comments.
Always seems to be something different going on round these parts to shoot.

That is so cool. I didn't know that they still do that in Ontario. I like the first one for the action and the second one for the interaction.

Awesome. I had no idea that the mail could be delivered in this way. It is such a world away from where I live. Remind me to show you shots of kangaroo mail delivery sometime.

Thank you very much ASnow, and RM.
Actually there are quite a few sled-dog operations in these parts. Very amazing mode of transport. My husbands friend does this for a living. At the last race he competed in he stated, "Sometimes I wonder if this is all worth it, for the stress, the exhaustion, etc, then when I get out there in the with just the sled, the dogs, and the vast wilderness and look around, It's like, Yes this is where it's at". A different world for sure.

Now THAT I would love to see. They don't even need a mail pouch as they have one built in.
