Our handlers reported that the temperatures have cooled off a bit from the last few days, below freezing. Excellent. They walked the trail a bit yesterday and said that it was much improved since their run on Thursday. That's great news.
Allen's start was calm and organized. Our dogs are such professionals. Here are some photos from the start.
Allen and Aliy at the Truck Getting Ready. Allen's sled is about 3 times as full as when he runs the Copper Basin.
Doug and Ray - Handlers - at the Dog Truck waiting for the Start. Family is great to have.
The Black Team at the Starting Line. Look at those dogs!!!
