Zoom Lens: Iditarod Headquarters, Wasilla, Alaska

Iditarod Headquarters the Wednesday before Vet Check

It’s was pretty quiet at Iditarod Headquarters today (Feb. 24, 2016) but next Wednesday will be the complete opposite.  Mushers will be rolling in with their teams for vet check.  Plenty of volunteer Veterinarians, all certified by the International Sled Dog Veterinary Medical Association (ISDVMA), will be on hand for the mandatory physicals.  As you can see, Wasilla doesn’t have much snow.  If you squint and look real close, you can see a tulip by the building.  Don’t worry, spring hasn’t sprung quite yet.  It’s a wooden tulip.
