I arrived at the museum yesterday at 10 am since I was told the mushers would be finishing around 11. Two teams had already come in before I arrived. I kept the museum open for a few hours when most of the crowd dispersed, even though there were still a couple of teams out on the trail.

The home locations of the mushers included:
Alaska 2
Michigan 7
Minnesotta 7

As I arrived on sunday morning, I was treated to a sprint to the finish by two of the teams.

When each team arrived, veternarians examined all of the dogs.

A local mush was interviewed at the delight of his supporters at the finish line.

Last night I decided to ski my property.  I snapped this picture to document the lack of snow this winter.  Normally this area on the south side of my house has another several feet of snow.
