Into the Wild

The day before the race

Enjoying a moment in the sun

The big sled dog race to Nome started today in Anchorage. Just for show. The mushers gave rides to VIPs through town and paraded their B-team, while the race dogs got a last rest day before the real start tomorrow.

A crew of veterinarians, checkers, and other Iditarod staff came in today and set up their check point at our cook house. We were busy all day preparing the lodge for guests, staff, media, mushers, and dogs.

We are expecting the first team to arrive at Puntilla Lake some time in the early morning of Monday. Within 9 hours all teams should pass through our check point. I hope to catch some of the action happening in between.
