SKIJORING AT ESCAPADE ESKIMO is a simple, easy read about a relatively new sport called skijoring at Escapade Eskimo.
The article is about a company (Escapade Eskimo) that has introduced a new sport called Skijoring.  It is basically cross-country skiing with a little assistance from a dog, pulling out front.  It is a popular sport because there is minimal equipment required.  You just need the basic equipment for cross-country skiing as well as a tug rope and a strong, healthy dog.  This place is located just outside of Ottawa around scenic Otter Lake in Quebec.  They have many trails that you can take so you can have a very scenic, enjoyable day. 
I can connect with the story because I live in the Ottawa area but I have been to this area in Quebec a few times, particularly Otter Lake.  It has some beautiful scenery.  Since taking outdoor ed last year, I have learned to cross-country ski and enjoy it.  I have two dogs and I’m pretty sure that the male dog would be perfect for this sport because he is strong, fast and loves to run.
