And here she is, Aliy Zirkle first into Galena with 14 dogs at 6.12. am. For her effort she earned a new award:” The Bristol Bay Native Corporations’s Fish First Award” which consists of a check for $1,000.00, twenty-five (25) pounds of Bristol Bay salmon, and a commemorative jacket. To help fuel her while still on the trail, Zirkle was also presented with a supply of Bristol Bay canned salmon and smoked salmon strips. Way to go, Aliy!!!!
Here are the promised shots of Aliy Zirkle of SP Kennels coming into Galena. Enjoy
