We arrived in Anchorage and parked around 8am. There were a lot of handlers out. Most of the photos of me with the mushers are on my aunt’s camera, so I will have to post them later. I took more photos of dog trucks. We walked up and down talking to people as we could without interrupting. It was 3 degrees when we got there, and it warmed up to 15. I was surprised how comfortable I was. I was cool, but not cold.
Dad spent a fair amount of time talking Alan Eischens – have to see how he does in the race!
Good thing about it being cold – I have my hood up so you can’t see what horrible things the headband does to my hair.
We stood right before the starting line so I can could take photos of everyone right before they started.
When I get home, I’ll load them up to the Facebook page and label them better.
We had a snack.
I made it about 3.5 hours before I had to warm up, right after Aliy started. There was a lot of cheering for her.
We did a little shopping, and the rest of the day will be the next entry. It’s time to go to the craft fair.
