Exploring Anchorage

I took a long walk on the outskirts of suburban Anchorage to see some sights and do some shopping, and had a close encounter with a moose along the way.

Volunteering at the Iditarod

March 9, 2004 Leave a comment

After a long flight from Pittsburgh via Chicago and Seattle, I landed in Anchorage late in the evening on March 8, and met my friend Claire, who had arrived a couple of days earlier. We did some volunteer work with the Iditarod sled dog race.

When racers leave ailing dogs at checkpoints along the course, they are flown back to Anchorage. We helped unload them from the airplanes, then helped the veterinarians check them over.
