Aliy Zirkle

We just this minute watched Aliy Zirkle cross the finish line of the Iditarod in Nome, as my son and his family are down there to watch her coming in.  She is from New Hampshire originally, which catches our attention, but she is especially beloved by mushers and fans because she turned back while in first place a few years ago to make sure her friend was okay, and ended up losing as a result. She was fourth this year.

I was surprised this morning when I checked the news and looked at the film out of Nome that I was nostalgic about the race finish.  I did little but criticise the place while I was there a year ago.

Harsh environments make for dear memories at enough distance.
