Husky Homestead well worth visiting. Jeff King very informative about the adventures of the Iditarod race, how it commenced and the traditions kept alive in modern times. Prevaricate how hard it was too live and survive in the winter conditions.

I enjoyed this MUCH more than I thought I would. The puppies were so adorable and I could have stayed there holding them the whole night. It was also a very informative experience and I learned so much about the Iditarod!
