56 Feet (Paws) Down and 1000 Miles to Go in This Year’s Yukon Quest

The 2007 Yukon Quest got underway this morning, so I went downtown to catch some of the action.

Here’s one of my pics – this one of Kyla Boivin and her team leaving the starting chute in chilly -22 -29°C (with windchill) weather:

These dogs are patiently waiting. Perhaps they’ll be racing in the Yukon Quest 300, which starts later in the day:

    Excellent picture of the dogs leaving the starting chute. I can almost feel the action from that pic. Glad I can’t feel that cold though, it’s not quite that bad here in Toronto.
