In this "Aliy Cam" episode, we pick up when the Red Team has left Shaktoolik and is crossing the frozen Norton Sound -- the "frozen ocean" -- en route to Koyuk. Aliy describes the trail, the ice conditions and what it's like to be "out there."
She also shares from her musher's perspective the same confusion we all experienced with the GPS of the route "going backwards" after the crossing. We knew where the checkpoints were, but not where the trail was. Aliy knew where the trail was, but not where the checkpoints were. I think you'll agree our circumstance was far less disturbing!
