Part 5 -- the finale of this series -- picks up after Allen and Bridgett have had about 30 minutes to eat and "rest" before returning to the dogs to do the departure process: Feed, bootie, etc.
During this time, the SP Kennel Red Team arrived in Paxson to begin its checkpoint routine. It was pretty dark by then, but I'm able -- with some pretty heavy video adjustment -- to bring you a few scenes of the Teams waving to each other as they pass at the checkpoint, the Black Team lining up and "waiting" to leave, as well as their start back down the trail.
The next time we see them they are in a sprint race to the finish line!
That just about does it for my coverage of the Denali Doubles Race, and for my energy for the day. Tomorrow I will start editing and posting video that Aliy and Bridgett shot out on the trail with their teams… Stay tuned!
