SP Kennel coordinates "Natural Extremes" Mushing Trips every year after Iditarod. These are fun dog team adventures for the mushers, dogs and the guests. This past March and April, we used Nome as a starting point for our trips. We had never explored the interior Seward Penisula by dog team, so it sounded like a great idea.
Overall, we spent almost a month on the western coast and had three groups of guests explore with us. Luckily, the SP Kennel video camera was put back together after Iditarod (thank you Macgellan), so we were able to capture some of these unique adventures on film.
Day One Excerpt
Five people, four dog teams and one snowmachine left Nome heading north. Our goal was to mush to Pilgrim Hot Springs and a hot tub soak. The dog teams traveled together for over 5 hours on Day One and covered nearly 40 miles. The mountainous scenery was daunting as the miles clicked by.
