Eye on the Trail: Telephoto Tuesday – From 16 to 14

Aliy Zirkle Approaches Nenana with 16 dogs in 2017

The 2019 rules allow the mushers to start Iditarod with no more than 14 dogs and no fewer than 12.  With the race just a little more than a month away, now is a great time to review the rules and become familiar with the changes.  Use this link to access the current 2019 rules.  Enjoy and cherish this classic photo of Aliy Zirkle and her long line of 16 dogs.
