Changing the world with a camera, words, art, and Christ! Come join in on the adventure!
Saturday, March 2 was the 111th Iditarod held in Anchorage Alaska. Well, the opening ceremony that is; all the racers assemble in downtown Anchorage for the opening ceremony and then one-by-one mush to the airport where the dogs get put away until Sunday where the race officially starts in Willow AK.
This year was an “odd year” where the mushers will take the southern route, skipping Fairbanks.
On “normal years”, the mushers would use the northern route.
I had a lot of fun being there, and expeshually because I had a camera! I really enjoyed searching the crowds for emotions and styles (etc) and interactions between the mushers and their dogs; as well as how the dogs were feeling. I could explain everything to you in words, but I feel pictures may be able to tell you this story a bit better this time. 🙂
I will be writing several more blog posts on different elements of my Iditarod experience. You can be sure there will be many, many more pictures for me and adorable dogs!
If you would like to know more information and get more in-depth about the routes (etc), I found this website most helpful-https://iditarod.com/about/the-iditarod-trail/
Hope you can join us in Alaska next year for the 112th Iditarod race! 🙂

Hey reader, welcome to my photography and writting spot!
At sixteen years old, I’m a freelance photographer, writer, poet, novelist and dancer (including baton, figure skating and ballet.)
I’m so in love with the outdoors, especially the mountains of Alaska, where I currently live when not traveling with a pencil, paper and camera.
You can find me playing sports of all kinds; reading avidly in a tree or amongst pillows eating anything that contains PB and chocolate, and the camera forever around my neck.
Jesus is my PASSION, more than I’m crazy about history, and He’s the true author of all my writings, as you’ll soon find out! Sharing Christ’s light with the world EVERY SECOND is my life mission!
I enjoy creating, so if you need someone to create:
-business cards, t-shirts, logos (business merchandise)
-edit your photos and videos
-writing protects & reviews
And other projects, you can visit my profile, or hire me on Upwork.com. @Grace T.
Also find me on BoredPanda.com @Grace Tiberend
I hope you enjoy my blogs of photography tips, photo shoots, stories, poems with a background, how to edit using photo apps —and much more! I can’t wait to share them all with you!
Grace Tiberend 💜
