    Awesome job Ray. Beautiful capture.
    There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

    Default Fun

    Tell me those dogs are not having the time of their lives!

    I'm not a dog, but those look like their happy faces to me!

    Awesome shots; looks like it might be a bit chilly (grin).

    While it was colder Saturday, it was around +3 degrees Sunday, a little warm for the dogs. These dogs have a lot of fun, and run at full speed for around 4 miles to the finish line. Most want to keep on going after the finish line

    The musher has to have a snowmobile behind the sled, like an anchor, to prevent the dogs from taking off running at the start of the race. Also, around three helpers hold on the lead dogs harnesses.

    A very color-coodinated musher. Great outfit, including the beaver mittens:
