Iditarod 2021

Iditarod 2021 MapSled DogIt’s Susan Butcher Day in Alaska which would normally mean the parade of sled dog teams through the streets of Anchorage. Because of COVID-19 the parade and any events that might attract a crowd have been cancelled.

The 47 teams who are starting from Deshka Landing will head North to Flat and then reverse course and head South back to the Landing. Passing could get “exciting” as sled dogs often have issues with other sled dogs. Things get underway on Sunday at 5PM CST. The last quarter of the moon is today and the new moon is on the 13th, so it isn’t going to be much help at night. There’s more than 12 hours of visible light and it is increasing by about 6 minutes a day.
