Iditarod Start and Finish
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
When my husband Jackie and I were working in Alaska back in late July through mid-September, we spent time both in Anchorage and in the little town of Nome. While we were in Alaska, we learned a fair amount about the famous Iditarod sled dog race. This is probably because the Iditarod starts in Anchorage and ends in Nome. We traveled to Nome by airplane, not sled dog, but we did make a point of visiting the start and finish points of the Iditarod.
Here’s a map showing the Iditarod race route:
Here I am at the Iditarod’s starting point in Anchorage:
And here I am at the Iditarod’s ending point in Nome:
Very cool that you got to see the finish line in Nome! I’ve never been there, am jealous. 🙂
