These are UP 200 pics... Frosty dogs are at the Escanaba checkpoint, and the frozen river shot is on the Ford river. Two years ago at this spot, I helped a musher who had dogs go through the ice. Luckily it was in shallow water. I sure miss running dogs when I look at these shots.

Steve, the two dogs in the closeup look like they are smiling and enjoying the run as much as their musher! This would be a real neat thing to see!

These pictures remind me of my two favorite girls- Pip and Sis. Pip is no longer with us but Sis remains and is a daily joy. Both Siberian Huskies have given us much pleasure and have been great companions.

Nice photo of the dogs. We have a race in our area also, and I try to get photos of the dogs, but I must say, your photo is a lot nicer then the ones I seem to get. I enjoy seeing all the photos on this site, as there are times I miss the UP.

Pictures like these make us old mushers forget all the shoveling, combing, brushing, toe nail trimming, watering, feeding, vet bills, feed bills, etc., etc., etc., and remember the sensations of running alone through the woods behind an eager team on a cold, crisp day.

Looks like Tim Osmar will take the Yukon Quest in Fairbanks tomorrow morning.
