Viles Arboretum in Augusta is one of the most beautiful places on any day in any season. If you have not taken a nice afternoon to explore the beautiful grounds and planting and collection, you are missing something special. But this winter they have been offering dog sled rides on Sundays. I can tell you, it is "paw-some"!

Even WABI-TV from Bangor showed up to do a news story. Check it out. I really was there, however their video show the people just before me in line and just after. They missed the opportunity to shot or interview little ol’ me!  The bummer for Morgan Small and her camera person, she told me they were not going to get the chance to do one of the rides.

As for the dog sled teams, they are from Heywood Kennels in Augusta. We had a chance to pet some of the dogs, the Heywood people answered tons of questions and the Heywood dogs seemed to having has much fun, if not more, than the people.

Great job Viles Arboretum of having some winter fun and drawing people in to your beautiful space.
