Completed the 350 mile Iditarod Trail Invitational. Second time around. A little warmer this year with temps only getting down to -35F and much better trail conditions. Road most of the way from Puntilla to Rainy Pass and crossed the Alaska Range under the cold moonlight with a thrilling night ride down the infamous Dalzell Gorge. What a trip. The ultimate mix of exhaustion and exhilaration. Impossible to describe. Finished in 5 days, 20 hours. So happy to reach McGrath again, but then instantly sad it was over.
