Iditarod Dog Lots
Ha! I'm back! I've been scanning, so I thought it was about time that I put some stuff up. This is a painting that I did as a part of my Alaska journal. It's more of a side painting, I don't think it'll actually be in the journal. This is where the mushers put up their dogs once they had crossed the finish line, and before they shipped everyone back home. Each musher got half a railroad car to store their dog's food, bedding, etc. that they had shipped to Nome before the race started. It's empty because I took the picture before any the teams had come in; no one was allowed to photograph the teams except the official race photographers.
