    Mrs Mongo’s Alaskan husky adventure

    A very short travel story snippet of happy days for us.
    Taken with Panasonic Lumix Z28 and excellent point and shoot camera

    Photo#1 – Mrs Mongo befriending and endearing herself to the local huskies.

    Photo#3 – invite an unsuspecting friend along for the ride and rev up the dogshusky-3.jpg

    Photo#4 – take the rig out for a burn and have a great time.

    Great stuff - they do look like they're having fun! I have bought a Lumix FZ35 for Warwick, at least that way I can get him shooting RAW.

    thanks Odille. You should not be disappointed with that camera if it is anything like ours.

    Thanks.
    Redgum, all that is Alaska is not snow. In summer it is a little like central Australia in places - which shocked the hell out of Mongo. At least these scenes were shot in a typically forested area of Alaska

    cheers.

    Haven't seen snow in Central Oz either although a couple of times when in sleeping bags it has felt like it. Just shouldn't be allowed to take photos of Alaska without snow. Like Queensland without, eh! eh!

    An excellent fun post mate
    I kind of like the last photo the best because knowing you culinary peculiarities I get the feeling from that shot that you were distracted from the task at hand ( taking photos ) by the urgent desire to jump left and have a quick chew on hind leg of husky in passing.

    Gregg , Mongo does not know the ins and outs of thier breed except to say they are the real thing as huskies go. They are the ones trained and used in the famous 1000 mile event regularly.
