Aliy and the Red Team left shortly after with Quito and Beemer leading the show. All the dogs were noticeably energized by the crowds, especially when we took a short stop at the Horizon Lines Hot Dog Stand. They were the stars of the show!
Thank you John Bean for the great photo!
More photos and a video from the start soon to come! All that's left is to rest up and pack the sleds and gear for tomorrow!
