The Yukon Quest

The Yukon Quest- the world's toughest sled dog race- took place this past week here in the interior. Mushers started from Fairbanks, AK and ended in Whitehorse, located in the Yukon territory. Temperatures were in the 40-below zero range when mushers started, but one of our hearty co-workers Lael bundled up to get us a few nice photos and a few video clips. Check them out below and find out more about this incredible race at
