We registered today, although our first activity isn't till Monday-- to make our map of the Iditarod Trail. We'll be mushing vicariously along with the teams right into Nome. I can't wait!
Jack is sure the dog on our 'button' to the left is 'Steele' the bad lead dog that thwarted Balto's efforts in the movie, 'Balto'. I love this story, and hope one day to visit both the race & the statue erected to Balto in Central Park, in NY. I assured him that alot of sled dogs look just like this, and we'll see that for ourselves as time permits.
We are also officially 'birding' these days. Must go load the feeder to attract some friendly creatures. Hope it's lots of cardinals, I love cardinals.
