What an awesome shot. I love everything about it.
It was taken in Kimmirut, Nunavut during the Qimualaniq Quest, a 320km race from Kimmirut to Iqaluit. While nowhere near as long as the Yukon Quest, I wonder how the Yukon Quest teams would do in the Qimualaniq Quest. Through the packed sea ice, they'd have to abandon their ganglines for fan hitches, for sure. I wonder if fan hitches would have helped through all the jumble ice on the Yukon River this year...
If I worked for Nunavut Tourism, I would use totally use this picture in an advertising campaign.
That is a REALLY cool shot. I love the fan hitches and those big furry dogs. Thanks for sharing.
