2009 World Championship Sled Dog Race

By Dan

March 3, 2009


This past weekend, I shot the 2009 World Championship Sled Dog Sprint Race here in Anchorage. Rather than fight and jostle with all the crowds downtown, I found a nice, secluded empty spot on one of the ski trails and shot the mushers as they raced past with their dog teams in near silence underneath a heavy snowfall. It was a very magical experience! Here are a few shots of the race as they cruised past me on the Chester Creek Trail.
