Just to let you know, I was
SO lucky to be able to fly over Karen on the trail yesterday. She was
traveling down the Little Susitina to the Yenta River. Karen had arranged for myself, Jeanne Stinchcomb and Karen's sister-in-law,
Melissa to fly with Doug Grillot.
Doug, you may remember,
traveled the trail last year with Karen. He is an Iditarod finisher as well as an excellent pilot and
just a really nice guy.
Karen and the beautiful sled dogs looked really good
traveling down the river. We circled them several times. She even waved to us a one point. It was
just an awesome sight. So amazing that they can travel in this vast countryside of Alaska. The views were spectacular. And of course there were
spectators at various spots cheering the teams on down the river. It's a party
on the Iditarod trail for many miles.
Morna...I had tears in my eyes for you as I gave Karen a last hug before I ran
down to get video of the team coming into the chute. I heard so many cheers
about the pretty dogs and there's a team!! What a happy moment.
Go Karen...fast trails and happy huskies all the way to Nome.
