Driving by our office here on Rt.219, our flashing sign suggests that you should “Think Snow!” Apparently, many people did, as we continue to have the wonderful fluffy stuff falling down. Wisp is still going strong as are other winter activities in our area. As I mentioned previously, snow- shoeing tours are an excellent family activity. Crede Calhoun from All Earth Eco Tours does these as well as cross country skiing. Definitely worth checking out. (www.allearthecotours.com or call them 1-800-446-7554) Another fun activity to check out is Husky Power dogsledding! (http://www.huskypowerdogsledding.com/or call them 1-301-746-7200) Here you get the thrilling opportunity to be pulled by a team of Siberian huskies! You will get to visit the kennels and pet and play with the pups! Demonstrations are given on how the sleds work, how the huskies play, live, train and more. Best of all is the excitement of whisking through the trails while being led by the dog team. A Deep Creek must do!
