Just before midnight on February 13th, Jess Sears of Dog Song Rising pulled into the Pelly Crossing finish line for the YQ250. Sears arrived with 8 dogs. The temperature dropped and northern lights came out dancing in full glory.
Volunteers cheered in Ilana Kingsley of Stinky Pup Kennels as she and her team crossed the finish line - 9 dogs - to take the Red Lantern Award for the YQ250.
A valiant effort by all YQ250 mushers and their teams. Congratulations to everyone! They will be celebrated at the Finishing Awards tonight in Whitehorse, YT.
Our media team is en route to Dawson City to document the YQ450 Finish in Dawson.
