Iditarod Race: Day 9

With 922 of the 1150 miles of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race under their belt (or runners as the case may be) Jeff King and Doug Swingley have checked into Shaktoolik (pop. 199). Less than forty miles behind are DeeDee Jonrowe, Bjornar Andersen, John Baker and Paul Gebhardt who have all left Unalakleet and are on their way to Shaktoolik.

Beyond Shaktoolik, the mushers and their teams move out onto the ice of Norton Sound. Things are shaping up for a very close finish.
