Most of the mushers have left Tanana and are running the frozen Yukon River. They will take 119 miles of the Yukon to get to the village of Ruby. Some of the mushers will take a rest while a few will just check in and get back on the trail. It was a nice sunny day along the trail. We had a nice time flying between the checkpoints to capture the mushers from the air. Using a plane gives the viewer a nice perspective of the terrain and just how remote the trail can be.
