And They're Off!

The 41st annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is officially underway, with the 1st musher (Martin Buser) leaving Willow around 1pm today.
from the linked story at www.adn.com

There are a dozen or more teams with roughly equal chances of winning this year, so this could be a GOOD one.  :^)

Love your banner picture. It occurs to me, as it has so much lately, how much we take for granted. I mean . . well . . . look at that picture. Think how the technology of photography in this digital age has enriched our lives. I'll never physically stand behind a lunging string of sled dogs, but sure come close to it with this kind of photography.

Thank you for that wonderful reminder, Cathy, and I'm glad you enjoy it.
