Ryan and I just finalised our travel arrangements for what will mark the next chapter in my chronicles of “unique Canadian adventures”. In a little under two weeks we will both head North to Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon, to witness one of Canada’s great sporting spectacles – the “Yukon Quest”.
Originating in 1984, the “Yukon Quest” is an International dog sled race that covers 1,000 miles / 1,600 km of rough and sometime hazardous terrain between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska. This year 28 teams of 1 “musher” and 14 sled dogs will complete the course that follows a historic arctic trail.
Ryan is actually heading up on business with his work “Boston Pizza”, so I’m sure while he’s out doing his thing with that I’ll be happily snapping pictures of gorgeous husky puppies and any other interesting things I find around Whitehorse.
I’m REALLY stoked about this trip and can’t wait to share my images with you all in the very near future. In the meantime, if you would like to read some more about the race and it’s history, visit www.yukonquest.com
