We were at faraway remote villages to photograph checkpoints of Iditarod race. I swear, the best experience comes when you are on distant checkpoints. Experiencing Iditarod with only Willow or Ceremonial Day races without checkpoints is nothing. The real Iditarod is on the trail, not on start nor finish.
I cannot get over how amazing experience was in remote areas. Far away from civilization.

As I've been and witnessed in many mushing events, participated, handled and so on, I've seen dogs crossing the finish line after run and resting... but on Iditarod, I've never seen such exhausted dogs! As soon as they crossed the checkpoint line, stopped for break they instantly went to sleep. They were so tired that...

... that's right, these dogs ran 700+ miles at that moment. Here how a dog after 700 miles looks like.

I really admire the legendary, wonderful stamina of these athletic animals. I can also tell that they really enjoy that run. That was so beautiful for me to watch them for couple hours, observe and feel them that I almost cried.

Polarwolf | 7 month old | December 2012 | Wisentgehege Springe
Nikon D7000 | f 4 | 200mm | 1/500 sec. | ISO 400

But there was some water ice, they loved :D When I took a winterwalk with my own dog, I realized again how similar her behaviour compared to the one of wolves is. When we saw a frozen puddle, she did exactly the same as the puppies in Springe: She tried to break it and wanted to take one of the pieces with her. I edited the picture a bit, made it a bit brighter. The original picture you can find on Dawnthieves.

This is a stock-photo!
Feel free to use it for manipulations, roleplays or other things - as long as it is for private use. Commercial use is not allowed, that includes (point)comissions here on dA. Nevertheless, I would be glad if you work with my picture. A credit and a link back to my profile would be nice and fair. Thank you!

A very merry Holidays for everyone.
May the Holy Day wake up you and realize the gifts of love you have received.


On that day where I traveled to the heavens, I have prayed for my mentor who has passed away a couple days.
I've stood on the horizon on the edge of world where I'm just a few steps to the rainbow bridge since latery I'm battling with my life, health issues and own feelings as well. A voice from the heavens came to my mind where I've asked myself:

If you are an artist by yourself, and you can see that your life is your own creation, then why not create the most beautiful story for yourself?

That's for what lonely travels are, where you are able to face with yourself.

Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland

Diet: Caribou, musk oxen, Arctic Hares, seals, ptarmigan, lemmings. Arctic wolves eat all their prey, also its bones and fur
Conservation status: common. They still live in the whole of its original range, because local conditions are too extreme for humans.
Interesting facts: mother gives birth to some 2-3 pups in May. Pups are born almost black – as they get older, colour of their fur turns to white. Adults are completely white, even in summer | arctic wolves live in the pack of some 7-10 members. Only alpha male and alpha female mate | arctic wolves have shorter ears and nose than other wolves species. They also have thicker fur, shorter legs | they do not run too fast, their advantage is persistence
ZOO: to see exhibit of arctic wolves, click Here ;)
