Popular Mechanics has a blog entry from the Yukon Quest, a 1000 mile long dog sled race that is one of the crown jewels of the sport.

In the blog, photographer Ken Tape follows along as one of his friends who is racing in the event, which is now more than 700 miles in. The temperatures have fallen to as low as -53 degrees F, which it taking it’s toll on the mushers and their dogs. The race started in Whitehorse, Canada, and will end in Fairbanks, Alaska.

There are a number of previous blog entries covering this event at the end of this one. Worth a read for anyone interested in the sport. And by the way, we’re now just 8 days from the start of the Iditarod. Some of the mushers will do both races nearly back to back.
