Thanks to nice snowmachiners

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, December 30, 2003

I often hike and snowshoe on Juneau's trails and I have to admit that I've had reservations about sharing the trails with snowmachines. A couple of weeks ago some nice fellows changed my mind. I have been meaning to say thank you ever since.

I was snowshoeing on the Dan Moller trail and my heart skipped a beat when I heard snowmachines coming toward me from behind a blind corner. I gathered up my dogs and braced for the worst. I was pleasantly surprised. The snowmachine operators slowed down to a snail's pace, gave me a friendly nod and kept a cautious eye on the dogs sitting next to me. After they passed I scolded myself for my mistrust and continued my day with a renewed faith in humanity.

Thanks for reminding me that we can all co-exist here and that there's still hope for peace on Earth.
