Hard pulling sleigh dog team:

Hard pulling sleigh dog teamTeam of enthusiastic sled dogs pulling hard to win the Yukon Quest sledding race.

This photo Hard pulling sleigh dog team was taken during a Yukon Quest sled dog race. The legendary epic Yukon Quest 1,000-mile International Sled Dog Race is considered the toughest sled dog race in the world. It is a difficult challenge for the dog team leaders, called mushers, and their dogs. They follow historical gold rush trails and mail delivery routes of the frozen wilderness between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska. Unpredictable and often harsh weather and trail conditions as well as very limited support that contenders are allowed also test their woodsmanship and sometimes even survival skills.

The official Yukon Quest homepage reveals the full story.

This photo Hard pulling sleigh dog team was taken in the Yukon Territory, the most north-western part of Canada [map]. Mysterious taiga and subarctic tundra, untouched wilderness, wild rivers, clear lakes, rugged mountains, bright midsummer nights with buzzing mosquitoes, strong winters with crystal clear coldness, terrific landscapes and indescribable light – all that is the Yukon (and so much more!). You either hate it or you love it, but you just can't be indifferent.

The Gwich'in first nation word Yukon means “Great River” or “Big Stream”. It was the ever famous Yukon River that the Yukon Territory was named after. Yukon history is marked by the great gold rush of 1897, which is often referred to as the world's greatest gold rush ever. Mining has been since its major industry. Still, the Yukon has “the freshness, the freedom, the farness” that poet Robert W. Service wrote about. Truly, the Yukon is “Larger than Life”, which is the current official slogan. No wonder wilderness adventure tourism flourishes.
