Wasilla Alaska, June 2014

Click for 7 pics in Picasa. “The Iditarod” is a sled dog race that covers 1049 miles through remote Alaska. It is named after the remote town of Iditarod that is along the route. The race is run by a small army of volunteers and teams come from around the world to compete.

The Iditarod HQ is in Wasilla. Our guide Claudia who over-winters in Alaska when all the other guides go off to Hawaii and suchlike, is a volunteer helping on one station along the route.

It’s more than 1049 miles but they use that number because Alaska is the 49th state of the USA.
