And they’re off! The 2011 Yukon Quest start in Whitehorse

[by Teresa]  All of Whitehorse turns out for the start of the Yukon Quest, especially when it’s -10 and sunny like today. The girls and I visited with friends and watched the teams race by while Fritz did a bit of shooting. The highlight was a dog who broke loose at the start line and pranced around ahead of his team as they left the chute. I couldn’t help but wonder what he was thinking: “Should I run for it, or should I rejoin the team for the 1000 miles to Fairbanks?” It’s billed as the toughest sleddog race in the world, and these dogs are incredible athletes.
