Iditarod...Without Me!

My thoughts have turned to Alaska...the 2013 Iditarod started Sunday. Here's a photo of just one of the hazards dog teams face...


A big part of the support system for the Iditarod is the pilots who fly the supplies to all the check points. This plane has a pretty special paint job...and that's the only reason I am putting a picture of an airplane on my blog. (With three pilots in the family I get a little tired of "plane talk.")


This is definitely what I miss about Alaska...her beauty.

I'm right there with you. I always miss Alaska at this time of year. It was always so fun to go down and watch the start of the race.

My son moved home last year, and I sure do miss my 3, month long stays (one was Iditarod month) too.
What a gorgeous state.
