The Iditarod

The Iditarod is a dog sled race that runs every March from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. Traversing the Alaskan wilderness, the trail takes mushers and their teams of dogs through 1,049 miles of tundra and spruce forest and harsh weather conditions. This scene depicts a camp at a checkpoint along the route. Straw has been laid out on the snow for the sled dogs to provide insulation as they rest. Mushers gather to restock essential supplies that will tie them over until they reach their next checkpoint. Snow still coats the trees, attesting to the severe cold that prevents melting even in the middle of the day under full sun.

I love this picture!  It's simple, but beautiful and the colors really pop in the snow, as they should.  The sled tracks are awesome, as are the sleds themselves and the straw bedding is a nice touch.  Besides, I have Huskies so it's close to home for me too.

I hate to say this and I sincerely hope you don't get upset with me, but your dogs look kinda like sheep.   I'm not criticizing - really!  Just sayin'.
