Iditarod Pictures!

Frank, Tara and I went to see the Ceremonial Start of the Iditarod today. The ceremonial start begins in downtown Anchorage on Fourth Street. After getting a bit of breakfast, we were able to get close-up with the dogs and mushers as they prepared for the race.

The sled is carefully prepared. Before the start on 4th street, people enter a silent auction to accompany mushers on their way through downtown Anchorage.
Here's what a dog truck looks like. Notice the boxes for the dogs and the sled on the top of the truck bed:
More to come!
