This was taken a few weeks ago, while we were on the Riverboat Discovery Cruise here in Fairbanks with Phillip's parents.
One of the stops on the river cruise is at Susan Butcher's (Trail Breaker) kennels, where you're treated to some education about the dogs, and you get to see them run. Also, at the end of the cruise, at the Native Village stop, you can meet someone from the kennel for a question and answer session about Susan, the Kennel, and the dogs, etc.
Her partner, Dave Monson, takes the engine out of the 4-wheeler, and beefs up the brakes. At the command, the dogs are finally (because they are so eager!) allowed to do their thing. So, please watch until the end, because those dogs can GO!
"I do not know the word 'quit.' Either I never did or I have abolished it."
- Susan Butcher, Iditarod Winner, 1988
