So John and I have always loved to go to the Iditarod start in Anchorage. We usually start downtown at the official start and enjoy the barking dogs, the crowds of people with their Fur Rondy dress, and the energy of the event! Then we go on to Goose Lake Park and get an up close and personal view of the mushers and their dogs running down the trail!
Unfortunately John was working today, but I took the boys anyways. My mother joined me for the downtown portion (though I have no pics from downtown, it was pretty busy!). But here are the pics I took from Goose Lake. The boys had a blast and I love getting to watch the sleds run so close! It was a great day for it :)
Oh! And we even came away with souvenirs! The mushers were throwing their worn out dog booties for people to take home...Corbin thought it was pretty cool that the dogs had their own shoes.
oh and P.S. The Alaska Fiber Festival is this week and I will be vending there next weekend. So come see me!! I will be sharing a booth with Sally, from Moose in Socks. I am knitting up some sample stuff to have for show, including some darling booties I cast on last night!
