The Grand Tetons presented a beautiful backdrop for today’s race outside Driggs, Idaho. The morning sun was smiling on us. Right from the start the teams had to climb a steep hill. Here is the view from the top:
Then it was into open meadows, rolling hills, and narrow forest trails.
Every musher has his or her own signature kick. Here is Troy Larsen demonstrating how to finish in third place with one dog in the sled!
And finally, the stars of the race. Amazing to see the energy of the dogs after running 30 miles in less than 3 hours with some serious climbs and descents.
Looking forward to the next stages. It is supposed to snow…
