Sled dog racing, Iditarod, Anchorage, Alaska.

The start of the Iditarod, 2008, brings sled dogs racing down 4th street, Anchorage, Alaska, as they

Hey Folks,

Another, possibly the last for now, from the Iditarod last weekend. The dogs can’t wait to get started, I swear its as if they count down with the starter, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and they leap into the traces. It’s amazing to me to think that the leaders are over halfway to Nome already. A few years back I was fortunate enough to spend some more time with the race, a few days out on the trail, which was a blast. Maybe one year I’ll get out to Nome for the finish. Until then, I’ll suffice with the excitement of the start of the Iditarod in Anchorage.

Cheers

    Looks like this team is led by a couple of wild ones! The black one is about the closest thing I have seen to the “Big Bad Wolf” in reality! 🙂

    Hey Mark,

    Yeah, that’s a wild looking dog, eh? Some of the dogs are way cool. As for the wolves, you should get yourself up to AK – and bring that 200-400mm lens with ya. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Cheers
