In this picture, logs are being hauled out of the Aroostook Woods on a bobsled.
Bobsleds have runners in the front and rear. Each pair turn lefts and right independently of the other, making the sled more maneuverable.
Each pair of runners on a bobsled can also pivot up and down as the sled is pulled across uneven ground for a smoother, more stable ride than that of a long sled.
