#JuniorIditarod  racers will first come through #EagleSong  during the afternoon. We are about mile 55 in the race. The racers then go up to Yentna Station, take a mandatory rest, before turning around to head back to the race start/finish.
Coming back we are mile 95 for them and racers are often arriving early morning on their return trip!

Don't forget to watch it live on our social media February 24-25!

Don't forget to watch the #Junioriditarod  live on our social media February 24-25!

If you are in the area feel free to stop by and cheer the kids on! Our runway will be groomed and marked and we'll have food and a campfire going. If you are #snowmachining  over be sure to watch out for racers on the trail!

But also be aware that the local cell tower has already had some equipment turned off, reducing its coverage down to 25 miles around it, so much of the area around here is now a dead zone. Soon the tower will be turned off completely leaving the mushers and support crew in the future being unable to use cells for help. (See our last post. )

Jr. Iditarod supplies started arriving at EagleSong Family Peony Farm today via ski plane. Take note of the "certified" seed free straw for bedding down the dogs. Jr. Iditarod doing their part to help us reduce the introduction of "non-native weeds" to our farming operations.

Meghan flew out today on a small ski plane to be able to help out with the #JrIditarod  race this weekend. You can see from this areal shot, we're not they only ones using the rivers for #snowmachining  right now!

#throwbackthursday  Here is how we remove #porcupines  from our yard... dip net! Then we release them to the shore on the other side of the lake.
They sometimes come onto the property to chew on wood with glue on it (they like salty).
It can be dangerous or even deadly for our dogs to tangle with a #porcupine  so we get them far enough away that no one gets hurt. .

I found antlers, empty jars, old maps and not one human (to be fair, the population of this town is 28) 🚐

A view from above the Brooks Range in northern #Alaska . Stretching some 700 miles east to west, this is one of the most remote and wild sections of North America. The entire range lies above the #ArcticCircle  and trees are scarce and stunted, however, with the warming climate, the treeline appears to be steadily marching north. Perhaps these peaks will resemble their tree covered southern Rocky Mountain cousins someday. Yikes. -

"Nature is one of the most underutilized treasures in life. It has the power to unburden hearts and reconnect to that inner place of peace."

"Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more."

"Shadow is ever besieged, for that is its nature. Whilst darkness devours, and light steals. And so one sees shadow ever retreat to hidden places, only to return in the wake of the war between dark and light."

"It was a black and white day of frost, which crawled along the dark trees and outlined twig and branch. The air was misty, and distant objects assumed a mysterious importance. Slight sounds, too, suggested infinite activities to the mind."
-Robert S. Hichens
