Weekend Recap: Celebrating the Frontier Spirit

It's been a while since we've gone on some type of adventure, or even had a Saturday that was hockey-free.  This is the first time in 3 years that Steve has been in town for the ceremonial start of the Iditarod.  So, we hit the streets of downtown Anchorage this past Saturday to take in two seriously Alaskan events that celebrate the frontier spirit, the ceremonial start of the Iditarod and Fur Rendezvous' Running of the Reindeer.  

Here's our Saturday in pictures:

Iditarod ceremonial start:

Fur Rondy's Running of the Reindeer:

Do I think these people are crazy for running with reindeer?  Slightly.  But in the 6 years this event has run, no one has been seriously injured... by a reindeer.  We definitely saw many people eat the ground though. Kudos to those people who can now check "running with reindeer" off their bucket lists.

Enjoy your week! I hope it's warmish and sunny!

Linking up with Sami's Shenanigans for Weekend Shenanigans.


  1. I am so jealous. I miss Alaska almost every day!

  2. Best weekend ever. I may or may not have spent a few hours curled up on the couch watching the start of the Iditarod on my computer. Husband wasn't impressed..


I would love to hear from you!
