We had a visitor last August from NH. She was looking for the "Real" Alaska so I took her to see Mary Shields. When we arrived at her home we found out we were the only ones who had booked that afternoon because it was threatening to rain but Mary welcomed us with open arms and treated us to a wonderful afternoon. She took her time and answered all our questions, and shared her amazing experiences with us. Her unique life style and love for her dogs and mushing gave us a real feel of true Alaskan lifestyle.
If you are going to Fairbanks, don't miss meeting Mary and her dogs.She will welcome you into her home and share her stories of mushing in the Alaskan winter. You won't be disappointed.
