Iditarod Ceremonial Start

I was lucky enough to be present for the Iditarod Ceremonial Start, here in downtown Anchorage. The official race doesn't start then, but you wouldn't know it from the crowds and the dogs. Not unlike the Rondy Sled Dog Race, the dogs are WAY amped though these dogs I think are bred for distance vs. speed.

Here's just a few pics - due to the volume, I've made them smaller, check them out in bigger form at my Flickr page:
