Morning We Left

The morning we left I harnessed my dogs, lifted the snow anchor and the dogs all exploded forward. Powerful legs of anvil-hard muscle thundered like pistons.

We were off. In the early morning cold our exhaled breath froze leaving behind an overhead ribbon trail like locomotive funnel steam.

I waved to Jennifer.

We rounded the sea ice shoreline.

And we were gone.
