Endurance on the ice
The home stretch of a dog team race between two brothers with the mountains of Bylot Island in the background.
We arrived early to watch the race, but didn’t realize the competitors would be out of sight within minutes, only to return a couple of hours later. An early morning endurance sport, but not one for spectators.
The dog teams here in Pond Inlet spend the winter on the ice. Huddled. Waiting to run.
