Photo of the Week #35, selected in January, 2020

There is no iconic Iditarod race in Colorado, but that doesn’t mean the conditions in some parts of the state don’t dictate a certain mode of transportation. This photo was taken from State Highway 9, about an hour or so northwest of Pueblo. When the wind is blowing and the snow is drifting over the highway, this musher can actually move faster than traffic on the road.

According to Colrado.com, “From mid-November until mid-April, depending on snow conditions, several operators throughout the state offer a variety of dog-sledding tours. Owners, mushers and handlers all take a great amount of pride in their dogs. And if you ask around, you’ll find that they don’t just run dogs to make a living — they hook them up to the sled every winter to see them do two things they love: pull and run.”
