If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I would love to learn how to skijor with my dog. Skijoring is a winter sport that combines cross-country skiing with dogsledding: a person on skis is pulled by a dog (or sometimes, in the Mountain West, a horse), so it’s essentially dog-powered skiing. I love skiing and spending time outside with my dog, so skijoring would be a great way to combine those two things — and help create a new level of teamwork and trust with my dog.
What’s the favorite place you’ve traveled to and why?
Iceland is my favorite travel destination, so much so that I’ve visited the country three times. I’ve spent three weeks exploring various areas around the country and two weeks hiking and camping in the Icelandic Highlands. One of my favorite things about Iceland is the raw, natural beaty and how it feels untouched by humans. Some of my favorite things to do in Iceland are hiking Sveinstindur Peak, exploring the lava tubes, soaking in the Mývatn natural baths, and riding Icelandic horses.
