Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race Winner

This is the sled dog team of Sebastian Schnuelle, winner of this year's 1,000-mile Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race. The photo was taken this morning on the Chena River in Fairbanks, Alaska, one mile from the finish line. The temperature was minus 2 Fahrenheit, ideal for dog mushing. Schnuelle's team of ten dogs are confidently passing by the Hamilton Acres and Island Homes subdivisions. The trees in the background are on the Fort Wainwright Army base. Schnuelle's team completed the race in a record time of 9 days, 23 hours, 20 minutes, the first nine day Quest race.

This is one of many photos I am considering making into a post card to commemorate the event.


  1. That is a great shot and will make a wonderful postcard. I just had some made of an old photo I found. I will try and post it in the next few days...Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank's Diane. I hope to get some other postcardable images as the race passes by on the river today and tomorrow but I have two sick kids so this may be the only photo I get. Your father, mother and brother are in my prayers. Thanks for posting. Kris
