From Anchorage, in south central Alaska, to Nome on the western Bering Sea coast, each team of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover over 1150 miles in 10 to 17 days. March 6th sees the start of the "Last Great Race on Earth." Dog men world wide wait for this yearly event. I have a soft spot for Lance Mackey and his team.
