We have had a few snow falls in the last week and the trails are shaping up nicely. So much so, that we took several teams to the east of the kennel towards the first Yukon Quest Checkpoint. No one, except for the occasional fox or snowshoe hair, had been over the far side of the trail.
LOOKING WEST - No sign of the YQ trail!; LOOKING EAST - Chris and Wes rest the dogs.
Kodiak and Junior were the first dogs over this portion of Yukon Quest trail. The sibling duo laid down a very nice route that now all dog teams will follow for the remainder of the season.
That being said… it's nice to start the season being the FIRST place dog team on the Yukon Quest trail. We like that! We just need to keep it up until February 15th!
Kodiak and Junior pose for the camera while Mismo and Izzy take a break; Nacho and Cayenne and ready to go; Torch and Nomex are next; and in wheel are Wedgy and Felix (you can see Felix's head.)
