Quick sampling of Start, Iditarod 2011

It's about the dogs.... These are neither in order nor even close to how many pix I took, but for now will have to hold you will I go swill some head cold medicine. Sigh.

Eric Rogers and Rod Perry running an ol' fashioned get-up in recognition of the Historic Iditarod Trail, so to speak.

Aliy Zirkle

Synchonized mushing?

Cain Carter

Dallas Seavey, 2011 Yukon Quest Champion

Ed Stielstra

Ed's dogs taking the corner right in front of me.

Hans Gatt takes that sharp left turn at Goose Lake Park.

Hugh Neff's dogs were sporting tie-dyed doggie coats, not to mention Cat-in-the-Hat in the sled.

Hugh's cape...Cat in the Hat rules.

Dan Kaduce, last year's Rookie of the Year, rides Jodi Bailey's tag sled this year.

Umm, did anyone tell Jodi's Idita-rider that moose are not a musher's friend?

Included this pix to show the sign the mushers had to get themselves and their tag sled riders past safetly.

Ken Anderson, whose dog were sporting Redpaw doggie coats.

Lance Mackey

Wow, Lance can drive his sled backwards, too!

Mitch Seavey

Oops, how embarrassing!
