Photo of the Day – The Rookie and the Veteran

Dr. Larry Daugherty, rookie musher, and Mitch Seavey, veteran and champion musher, sat down for a visit during the Iditarod Volunteer Picnic today at headquarters.  One can only imagine the conversation.  There is something genuine and giving about the mushing community. The passing on of history and knowledge is a gift that veterans and mentors like Mitch embrace, which will ultimately help the Iditarod continue to be The Last Great Race on Earth® for generations to come.
