Today was day one of the 2010 Kotzebue Dog Mushers Association Dan Snyder Sr/Doc Harris Memorial. It is a three day race with one 16 mile heat each day. There were only three mushers.
Paul Hansen's dogs watch while he gets their harnesses ready.

Here is Budoo hooking up.
I thought today I might take some photos from a different perspective. Instead of taking photos of the mushers backs while they took off I walked down to the first turn and photographed then as they came towards me. I was kind of shooting into the sun so there is a bit of glare. Three photos of each musher.
I'll have the photos from the finish up in a bit.
