Arriving in Nome feels somewhat electric. When I arrived at the convention center they had the box my daughter had sent from Anchorage. What a joy that was – a change of clothes etc. I warmed up, took a shower and changed just in time to head down to the burled arch. I found Finney and Linda along the chute and we waited for Dallas to come in. I think I was colder there than I had been anywhere all week, but that was because I was standing still, which I seldom did along the trail.
We caught a cup of coffee to warm up and went back out to see Aily come in. Her dogs also trotted right through the chute proud to have arrived.
I am looking forward to welcoming musher after musher and trying to keep warm in between. I will also try to find the most interesting places in Nome to share with you.
Till tomorrow, here in Nome,
