Aliy and Team to UNK

This is a photo taken by Sebastian Schnuelle of Aliy and team on the way to Unalakleet. What makes this picture so awesome? Not only is Aliy having an incredible race, but check out who has been leading with Quito---WAYLON! Waylon couldn't look less like a sled dog. With a short coat and wiry body, he looks like a whippet. His bark sounds like a mixture between a frog and an old man coughing. Waylon and I were both rookies in the 2012 Iditarod. Who would have thought this little guy would be a leader on a top Iditarod team. So cool.
