We had a blast today going to the 2009 Tanacross Dog Sled Races. First, I’ve never been to a dog sled race so that was exciting in and of itself. Plus, we got to visit Tanacross, an Athabascan village near Tok, which was a very special privilege for all of us. (Here’s some interesting information about the Tanacross language.)
It was a blue sky, white clouds, frigid day, but despite the cold we enjoyed every minute of the experience, including the “up-close-and-personal” access we had to the racers and sled dogs. Here are just a few photos from the day. More on my Flickr page.
I look forward to more outdoor activities and events in the Tok area, and more than anything, look forward to returning to Tanacross in the near future.
