Landing In Kiruna, Sweden

You gotta go far for dog sledding, all the way north of the Arctic Circle. Hello Kiruna. As it turns out, Kiruna isn't there to support a bunch of running pooches.  They've dug a little hole in the ground for mining iron ore. Did we say little? It's the biggest underground ore mine in the world.

Little airport, big scenery.

The street signs tell you you're in Sweden. And the snow drifts.

A local cafe proudly displays Kiruna's mining history.

Did we mention snow? Easy, Boston! Either you end up buried or you call in the big boys with their tall trucks to help remove the white stuff.

Backyard requirements, a hockey goal and a sled to take shopping/hauling.

Drifting dumpster. Modular living.

Signs keep you on the right trail in the winter.
