Zoom Lens: Aliy Zirkle

Aliy Zirkle finished the 2017 Iditarod in 3rd place for the race and her husband Allan, who gives their younger dogs a first look at the trail, finished  in 32nd place.  Of course Aliy was at the burled arch to welcome Allen and the dogs. This was Allen’s finish but Aliy did answer one question as to how glad she was to see him.  She responded, “I’ve been wanting to talk with him for a few days now.”  It’s Aliy that’s wearing the red coat and loving up this blue eyed dog.
