Staging area for the Yukon Quest dog sledding race. It is 1,000 miles (1,600km) long. Takes 7-8 days to complete. Volunteers in yellow bibs. Scott & Nancy were somewhere in this mess. never saw them again.
Staging area behind start. The mushers getting their dogs out of their kennels and ready for the race. The Yukon Quest is second only to the Iditirod in dog sledding in AK.
Getting the sled and dogs ready for the race.
Once out of their kennels, time for a good pee!
The crowds at the starting area were too much for me. I walked downriver until I had a good vantage point.
Getting away from the starting area made it easier to get a decent photo of those competing in the 2016 Yukon Quest
Shot from bridge over the Chena River.
