Kevin Kling goes dog sledding with a group from Australia that have never before seen snow. The beauty of the surroundings, the stars and the starkness are incredible, but even more incredible is that each of these first-time dog sledders have their own physical challenges.

MICHELE NORRIS, Host:

Here's another story about a journey into the unknown, albeit an unknown that's much closer to home. It's from commentator and storyteller Kevin Kling.

KEVIN KLING: The next day we prepare to leave, and I look and lo and behold there are my boots waiting for me. As we ride past Lake Superior in silence, I keep singing to myself, here comes the spirit of the wolf, here comes the spirit of the wolf.

NORRIS: Storyteller Kevin Kling lives in Minnesota. You're listening to ALL THINGS CONSIDERED from NPR News.
