We just returned from the Denali Highway after competing in the Alpine Creek Excursion Race. Wow, we so enjoyed the wonderful hospitality, gorgeous scenery, fun mushing, and time with friends. The race consisted of a 55 mile run from Cantwell to Alpine Creek Lodge, followed by a leisurely run back to the truck the next morning. Riley and the yearlings split the run into two 20-25 mile runs with a campout in the middle. All the yearlings did exceptionally well and can add this race to their racing resume, bringing in the red lantern. Ryne and the adults placed 3rd and ran straight through to Cantwell. Katy and Sally stepped up as the speed leaders, although their passing manners need some improvement. Pictures to be posted tomorrow!
