Eider Duck, our Alaska cousin, brought us some photos from the starting point of the Iditarod in Fairbanks. The Iditarod is a dog sled race in Alaska. Some call the Iditarod the “last great race.” The race usually begins in Anchorage, Alaska and ends in Nome, Alaska. This year, however, there was not enough snow in Anchorage for the beginning of the race. The race was Re Started Monday, March 9, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. in Fairbanks, Alaska. The awards banquet is scheduled for Sunday, March 22 at 4:00 p.m. in Nome, Alaska.
These are some of the photos Eider shared with us. These photos were taken from a distance, so we are not sure whom the mushers are, but we love these. Thanks Eider!
Great photos Eider. Thanks!
