Mushing Royalty in the ghost town of Iditarod

There is 4 teams parked in the checkpoint. And all 4 teams have something in common. THEY ARE CHAMPIONS.

Martin Buser 4 time Iditarod

Lance Mackey 4 time Iditarod and 4 time Quest

Jeff King 4 Time Iditarod, 1 Time Quest

Sonny Lindner won the very first Yukon Quest.

Here a few pictures from around the checkpoint after Martin came in. His team sounded like some yipping coyotes coming in, while Lance was sizing up his competition. After all Lance decided to take his 24 hrs layover here, as trail reports are not great going to Shageluk .
