This first week of Idita-Walk is off to a good start, with several Team SiberMal packs reporting in.
Khyra is forging ahead, checking every site for evil sqwirrels before making camp. She took a bit of time off for her huzzy photo shoot, to appease her many fans. As soon as she rests up (those photo shoots can be so exhausting!) she'll hit the road again.
Our youngest member, Khady Lynn, has also been romping onward. All that youthful enthusiasm! More about her when Jack (that's me) interviews her for our first "Meet the Teams" interview, coming soon!
My "twin brother" Steve and his darling and daring sister Kat sent in a pic of them trekking away. Notice the motion blur - obviously they weren't going to stand still for a moment to let mom use that flashy box. She'll just have to keep up!
Star & I are making progress, but we did take a day off yesterday to play in the new snow. (What self-respecting husky wouldn't?) We also stopped along our virtual trail to take at look at - are woo ready for this - "JACK LAKE!" Ha-roos! I have my furry own lake and didn't even know it! We found this stunning photo of Jack Lake at Twilight by Mary Lang . (Be sure to check out her link formore of her beawootiful water photos.) Today we'll be packing up and mushing out.
We found some furry interesting reading on the Iditarod site - check out real details of the terrain of the route at the Iditarod's Route and Checkpoint map. Makes for a dogs-eye view of the trail!
That's the news from the trail today, Happy mushing!
Reporting for Team SiberMal, a-roos to yous, Jack
