ceremonial start, iditarod 2013
loved this sled dog chilling on a camp chair. such a cutie!! i think i remember him from last year. most sled dogs don't have this much fur. i'm sure hundreds of people got this same picture...maybe not in black and white i guess. hopefully, i will do better getting moving tomorrow morning. katie is driving out to willow with me so that should get me more motivated!
wore my new fur fingerless gloves out there and they worked great...even got a compliment on them. will be sure to take those out to willow.
so the reindeer event was lots of people in costumes sorta half jogging down the street with about 15 caribou who seemed to know they just needed to jog along and get to the other end. they got led back down the road for 3 races. i'd seen enough. the dogs were enjoyed by many though.
there were these two adorable toddlers behind me. the one kid did a faceplant in the snow on purpose. then she was in like downward facing dog position. i was cracking up. lots of families out there, kids sledding between dog teams and such.
some would say, who cares about the horse meat, meat is meat, but if it hasn't been raised for consumption you don't know what stuff the horse has been given or exposed to. could be bad.
