On February 2nd, the Yukon Quest 1,000 mile International Dog Sled Race started in Whitehorse, Yukon.
The race began in 1983 and is held every year since. Thirty teams of mushers set off on this thousand-mile journey and after fifteen days Brent Sass made it out in the first place. I was fortunate enough to get the chance to see my first dog sled race thanks to Deb, the Museum Technician at KLGO.
In the Yukon, it was -35 degrees and which meant that I had to be bundled from head to toe. Below are just a few of my photos from the event, with those temperatures I couldn’t take too many photos out of fear of my phone malfunctioning and my fingers getting a little too cold.
