Just kiddin’!!

Hello Race Fans!

The start of the Denali Doubles went off without a hitch! After a fantastic cup of chili at the Cantwell Lodge the crew headed out to the race start approximately 5 miles out of Cantwell where we were happy to find many mushers all neatly parked according to their starting positions.

Eighteen teams left the starting line beginning at 5pm sharp and all teams were on the trail by 5:34pm.

Allen Moore and daughter Bridgett Watkins leave the start line.

We traveled the trail via snowmachine to Alpine Creek where we were greeted by smiling faces and volunteers ready to get the job done. Dinner was wonderful there as well! A cheesy pasta casserole with halibut!

Team Kaduce/Bailey were the first into Alpine Creek, and they were the first to make it to Maclaren. Teams seem to be travelling at a pretty good speed and so far the trail has been great. We spotted all kinds of wildlife on the way out: Caribou, Moose, Fox, Lynx and then a dreaded porcupine.

ok – gotta get this one to print!

Teams are arriving in Maclaren as I write this so we’ll be in touch again soon!
