K9 Super Stars

Uploaded by: johngomes

Friday February 4, 2011

Caption: Sprint mushing in full swing in Alaska. This 10 dog team makes a good showing during the Raven Electric sponsored race at the Tozier Track in Anchorage. The morning had idea conditions for the dogs - 15 degrees F - and not quite warm enough for the likes of the photographer.

I knew in the thumbnail that this must be yours!  Yes it IS the season, isn't it!  Mush until the snow disappears!
The Yukon Quest, 1000 mile international sled dog race between Whitehorse, Yt Canada and Fairbanks Alaska is set to start this morning in Whitehorse at 11 am!  Very exciting time for us in the interior.
Temps here are way too warm for dog-comfort though, they like it best around -30 and we are closer to zero... odd weather...

If dogs were human they'd be humming to themselves, "Heaven, I'm in Heaven..." Wonderful capture. Made my day!

About johngomes

johngomes

I retired as a police officer/crash rescue firefighter in April of 1990. I have enjoyed photography since the mid 70's and crossed over to the digital world in 1996. Along with being the volunteer photographer for the Alaska Zoo the main focus of my photography is to show Alaska as it passes in front of my lens on a day to day basis. While viewing my albums be sure to look for lnks to Britt Coon's Smug Mug albums. She is becoming a great photographer in her own right and it has been fun watching her develop her skills for the last couple of years that we have worked together. To view more of her work click here and visit her SmugMug album.
