Yesterday famous Iditarod dograce between Anchorage and Nome, Alaska, ended with Lance Mackey winning for the third time. Last year I was really fortunate and I saw him come into Nome on the webcam, even though it updates only every minute. This year the lines broke down just before his arrival and what you can see here is the first pic the webcam showed again; quite a few minutes after arrival of the team. But it is still visible how people greet Lance and his dogs whilst he disappears in the crowd....
in the meantime German (from Wuppertal) Sebastian Schnuelle is in, too, well up and in 2nd place!
Great thanx go to Mary; she provided me with online updates once, sometimes twice a day directly from the scene!!! Y
Many mushers are still to come in under the burled arch, so I will watch further!!!
