As Aliy and the team rest in Galena it reminded me that SP Kennel has a recent link to the village.
Some of you may remember back in May the village of Galena and other villages along the Yukon suffered flooding when the Yukon River suddenly broke from its winter freeze and spilled over its banks. I remember the admiration for the dedication of mushers in the village as they rescued their dogs and ensured they were safe. Click the pic below for a link to the SPK Doglog story about this.
You may also remember that SP Kennel took in 16 evacuated sled dogs for a few weeks until they were able to return to their owner Carlson Malemute (click here for the link to that story).
One wonders if Aliy might get a chance to catch up with Carlson and his dogs while she is in Galena?
