This "baby" moose and its mother hung out in the field across the road from work late this afternoon. Sure glad I had my camera in my briefcase!
First place finisher of Yukon Quest.
The first and second place finishers in the Yukon Quest 1000 mile International Sled Dog Race arrived in Fairbanks this morning just before noon. I made it a point to be there with camera in tow. Here is some information about the dogs from the http://www.yukonquest.com/ website:
The original sled dogs were chosen for their size, brute strength and stamina, but modern sled dogs are generally mixed-breed (‘Alaskan’) huskies who have been bred for generations for their endurance, strength, speed, tough feet, good attitude and appetites, and most importantly their desire to pull in harness and their abilities to run well within a team.
