On the latest edition of Mush! You Huskies we continued our Dog Sledding Legends segments. This week we profile Dick Moulton.
It would be hard to estimate the number of miles Dick Moulton has traveled by dog sled. Compared to most mushers, it would be unapproachable. Considering the mileage and the time spent watching, thinking, figuring and reading his dogs behind his running team, Moulton’s achievements follow smoothly. He has competed in races all over North America, and won each one several times. He has been honored as “Musher of the Year” and is inducted in the Dog Mushers’ Hall of Fame. As the autumn of his career arrived, Moulton said, “even though I am getting old and slowing down, you can still find me out on the trails in the late fall, working for that ultimate dog team.”
