The Amazing True Story of Togo & Balto
When you want some family friendly inspiration, watch The Great Alaskan Race, which is the amazing true store of Togo and Balto.
I always love stories where dogs are the stars, but this one is especially inspirational.
The first time I heard the story of Balto I just assumed it was a fictional tale.
However, these legendary dogs did exist and they did help save sick children in a small village in Alaska.
This movie is intense and action packed, so the drama will keep you entertained.
Also, as you can see from the photos, the scenery is absolutely beautiful.
I don’t want to experience freezing cold weather outside, but I do like seeing the vast, snow covered Alaskan landscape from the comfort of my living room.
The Great Alaskan Race is a good choice for family movie night, since the film can be enjoyed by both kids and adults.
