#725 Postcard from Otter Lake, Quebec

Canada          Quebec

During the Easter Weekend, we visited Escapade Eskimo in Otter Lake, Quebec to try dog sledding. I rode the dog sled with Maryam in early February this year during the Governor’s General Open Day at Rideau Hall, so this is my second ride with Maryam. However for Aiman and mama it was their first time to ride dog sled.
