Dog Sledding in Breckenridge, Colorado
We can officially cross off dog sledding (mushing) through the back country of Colorado's wilderness off our to-do list. This adventurous activity has been on my bucket list for awhile, but honestly, I never imagined it was something we would actually pull off. When we decided to take the kids skiing out west this winter we knew this was a perfect opportunity to try something new, something bold and something filled with adventure.
Breckenridge was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend you visit if you get a chance. We didn't have a lot of spare time to visit the town because we took full advantage of our ski passes. Skiing in Breckenridge isn't cheap, but the experience is absolutely worth the price; the ski resort knows safety is a serious matter, they went above and beyond with customer service and they were so kid-friendly that I was beyond impressed.
In addition to skiing and dog sledding, we managed to sneak in a couple nice dinners and hit a few shops. The restaurants were very accommodating to the SCD diet and my garlic allergy. I'm still working on that post about dining out on the SCD diet, but one tip is to call ahead and give a heads up so the chef, manager and wait staff are prepared for your dietary needs.
Even if you don't enjoy winter activities like skiing, snowboarding and dog sledding, you can still enjoy Breckenridge in the off season. Colorado is a beautiful state that has so much to offer, especially to those who love outdoor adventures and nature.

I feel so blessed that I am able to give my children the gift of these wonderful experiences. The earth is a majestic land and I want my family to take in as much of it as possible. We've kayaked with the orcas, met seals in Washington State, hiked the rocky beaches of Maine and now experienced the back country of the mountainous west. We thirst for more adventures and are grateful for what we have experienced.
