The look of sheer determination - 2010 Iditarod Ceremonial start in Anchorage, Alaska

I took these photos on 6 March 2010 at the ceremonial start of the Iditarod dog sled race. The real start is from Willow. The Iditarod is known as "the last great race". It goes 1,100 miles from Willow to Nome through unforgiving terrain and downright nasty weather.

 

I took these photos between Goose Lake and APU. What a great day to be an Alaskan!
