Methow Trails hosted the annual Doggie Dash race at the Town Trailhead in Winthrop on Sunday. It was great fun with terrific snow and good weather. There were three categories of races – Kids, Little Dogs and Big Dogs – and the ever popular costume contest. The Big Dogs category had the most entrants so there were three heats leading to an exciting final race. The prize for the costume contest is the much-coveted Golden Poodle – a traveling trophy. The winner has now won three times in a row!

Last weekend was the Hot Air Balloon Roundup in Winthrop – always one of my favorite festivals in this area. The weather did not cooperate so the balloons didn’t have as many opportunities to fly. I got to see them on Friday and I heard that the ‘balloon glow’ in town Saturday night was glorious. I always enjoy being around the staging area, watching the balloons slowly inflate, tipping the baskets upright and getting ready to fly. It really is a lot of fun. Bring your kids and your mom and everyone else but it’s probably best to leave your dog at home.
