The Open North American Championship sled dog race is held in Fairbanks, Alaska each March. Roxy Wright won the three-day 70-mile dog mushing race in 2017. Fans were dressed in their furs. It appeared the majority fur hats, gloves and ruffs were crafted locally. I saw fox, otter, lynx, wolf, martin and wolverine garments.

It was a bright day with just enough cloud cover to keep the contrast down. I under exposed to keep the highlights on people’s faces from blowing out. It is hard to acquire accurate exposures in high contrast light, but surprisingly most of my exposures were accurate.
