Everyone is excitedly counting down to the start of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race and related event, WorldWide IDEA's Idita-Read. Both get rolling this Saturday, March 3. I had the good fortune of being in Anchorage this week, and took some great photos of the 77th annual Fur Rondy Festival. I have posted some of those on this checkpoint page for the Iditarod Trail - North route, our route for this year's event.
Looking forward to this year's big 2012 race - have fun, everyone!
