Iditarod 2007 - Tales from the Trail
June 26, 2007
The plane dropped beneath a thick layer of clouds and there it
was - green.
I came down the escalator and there stood my friend in something
other then polar fleece and a winter jacket. Who knew?
We drove over bridges with flowing water underneath them, passed
scenery that looked similar, totally different. Who knew?
We drove into a yard that was oh so familiar, yet not. Leaves,
bugs, gravel and dirt.
In case you haven't figured it out, I'm up in Alaska. Mark and
holding down the 'fort' at home - which incidentally includes 7
pups that were delivered by Hilda the night before my trip north
Ronnie's Pictures for some snaps of the newcomers) - and I'm up
here so..well..guess you'll have to wait for the rest of the story,
sure some of you have already sorted it out!
BTW - Powder made the trip up with me to her new home in Jamie's
Despite a horrendously long travel day with flight
cancellations, delays, and
missed connections due to stupid TSA rules, she handled
everything very well
and is happily settling in with the rest of the Westrunner Crew.
