Mike and the team are trucking down the Yukon River. Wide, flat, and known for wind, the Yukon River can present challenges to mushers. However, our dogs are well prepared for these conditions through living and training in Cantwell.
There was an awesome video of the team arriving at Galena through the Iditarod Insider. " Mike Santos Into Galena " The dogs and Mike look good, happy, and moving well. Mike continues to post fast running times and is maintaining a big team.
Overnight, Mike will run to Nulato. Next will come Kaltag the last checkpoint on the Yukon. From here the trail will cross over to the Bering Sea Coast. More adventure to come!
