The owner of the Crystalwood Lodge is an Iditarod finisher and these are her sled dogs.

These tough customers are housed about a quarter mile from the lodge and only bark when being fed or when tourists (ie. US!) approach. They certainly responded to our dogs!

Guests are free to go see these noble athletes but must sign a waiver if they want to go in the fenced area and pet the crew. I think I’ll leave Ringo and Sophie (part husky!) back at the lodge if we were to go in the fenced area!!!

Here is some spiel from the Crystalwood webpage:

Briar’s Patch Sled Dogs…Iditarod Finishers!
Liz’s sled dog team, Briar’s Patch Sled Dogs, has successfully finished Iditarod 2008, to celebrate Liz’s 50th birthday! The team finished the race with 14 dogs (of the starting team of 16) in 14 days’ time. The dogs were magnificent, getting stronger and stronger as the race went on…they know they did something quite special! It was an honor and a privilege to be able to share the trail with them, and to have them take me — emotionally, spiritually and physically — places I could never go otherwise. Now I’m ready to share those experiences with others. For more information, you can contact Liz at 541-892-3639. Please plan on visiting the team during your stay here at the Lodge and congratulating them on a job well done!
