I have carried a hand held video camera on the race for years now. Honestly, I don't always think "Gez, this is gorgeous… I need to take a video!" But, I really did try to capture some amazing portions of the Iditarod Trail this year.
There are 13 videos in the ID: AliyCam 2016 Series.

At this point in the race, my team and I are still sorting out the kinks. This is only our second run in and the sun had just come up. We were happy to see the greater depth of snow as we traveled towards the Alaska Range Mountains. The snow makes a sled dog team’s progression so much easier. We can safely travel with complete control of the sled. As well, the dogs can grab bites of snow whenever the feel a little thirsty. The entire team is getting used to the routine that we will follow for the next 8 plus days.
