We went in to the headquarters to look at the little museum that was there..... here are some of the highlights:

Sigrid Ekran's Dog Truck
Sigrid Ekran is from Norway. She lived in Alaska for awhile and ran the Iditarod while she lived here. She now has returned to live in Norway and has been running races there. This year she is back to run her third race.

Here's the coolest thing.... this is her dog box. The sides close down and the whole thing loads onto the airplane to bring her dogs to the race. Then she just has to rent a truck to drive them around on!
Here is a picture of it all closed up:
Isn't that soooo cool?
Zoya DeNure's Truck
This might be Mrs. Rizzuto's new favorite musher. Her name is Zoya DeNure. She has a kennel where she rescues and rehabilitates sled dogs. She used to be a fashion model!
Zoya With Her Lead Dogs - they are girls too!
I'm going to stop here for now... I'll have more from the vet checks in the next post!
