Once upon a time, in the little town of Two Rivers, the adventure of a lifetime began!
With the Iditarod approaching fast, Moira and Quito lead a team out for the fun community event - the "Burger Run". They left Pleasant Valley Store at a little after 11 today for a 30 mile run to Angel Creek Lodge. The Fairbanks area is now under a winter weather warning, but although it was warm, the start was BEAUTIFUL! The weather held off for the start but snow started coming down about half way though.
Padee and I headed out the road and were able to get some nice video and photos. Then, she and Chris took the dog truck out to Angel Creek to meet Moira and the team for their kibble, meat and hamburgers. (I believe the hamburgers were for the humans, but you never know!!)
The team gets a meaty-watery pre-race snack; getting ready
Moira had a wonderful time getting out on the runners before she is once again tethered to the computer for the duration of the Iditarod.
Bootying; Lead dogs Nacho and Quito
Video and more to come tomorrow.
