You may recall that we began this White Mountains mini-series running dogs on the trail with Aliy, and that seems a good way to wrap it up as well. As I was editing this footage, it struck me as a little odd-looking, like maybe Aliy's camera got stuck in some kind of Black-and-White mode that I didn't know it had. But right toward the end you can see some color in the sunset, so the best I can figure is that there was just very little low, flat light. In truth, it pretty much looks B&W around here these days.
We hope you have enjoyed this mini-series from our White Mountains "practice" mushing trip, and that it has given you a good start-to-finish view of what all is involved in hitting the road to go racing. We wish we'd been able to share it with you just prior to an actual race, but you know that our season has been disrupted by lack of snow.
All reports indicate that our racing season will actually start with the Copper Basin 300 on January 9th. Stay tuned!
