Eleanor has an awesome place about 30 mins from Fairbanks. We did the 7 mile loop - absolutely beautiful scenery, very informative person and the dogs are incredibly well loved and looked after. Highly recommend! Worth a trip.

We are a military family living in North Pole for 5 years now. Whenever anyone from the lower 48 comes to visit, we take them to Just Short of Magic. Eleanor and the other mushers are always friendly, professional, and accommodating. From toddlers to grandparents everyone has had a great time meeting the dogs, going for the rides, and learning more about dog mushing from the people who love it.

The weather was perfect, and it was one of the best experiences that we have ever had! Especially since we love dogs, and these dogs are very well cared for. We got lucky to have owner Eleanor as our musher. She answered our many questions. The dogs just seem to love running! This is a definite must-do, especially with Eleanor and crew!
