N's postcards - 93

Alaska: "Mushing on the Bering Sea, Alaska. The Iditarod finishes at Nome each year. These teams vie for their positions before the finish." The iditarod is run from Anchorage to Nome (over 1150 miles) each year with teams of 12 to 16 dogs, and is finished in 10 to 17 days. I know what winter is like, and I don't know how they could do it!
Thanks Grandma and Opa Matt!
