On Day two of the CopperDog 150 Sled Dog Race we drove up to Eagle Harbor to watch the start of the race. The mushers start in reverse order, that is the leading musher is the last to start.CopperDog-150-Sled-Dog-Race-15-3-_0878

We walked around quite a bit watching the racers leave the starting area.

We also spent time watching the teams being hooked up as well as being brought to the starting line. It was a little different this year because someone had packed the snow down in the park so it was much easier for the mushers and volunteers to hook up the dogs and get them to the starting line.CopperDog-150-Sled-Dog-Race-15-3-_0862

Every year the kids get bored with the race and usually start playing in the snow. this little girl was building a snowman.
