Last, but not least I have always wanted to visit the Iditarod and Museum. It is located an easy 1 mile south of Wasilla on Knick-Goose Bay Road.
The museum has a very nice display of winning musher and dog biographies, trophies, awards, and memorabilia.
There was a very nice example of a cache used to store supplies enroute for the teams. These are built high enough to account for snow as well as bears.
There was the "Booty Tree" that displays many different examples of the shapes, sizes, colors, and fabrics the mushers use to protect the dogs' feet and packing toes on ice and frozen snow.
Of course there is also a gift shop, but that is not what attracted my wife. There was a team of dogs in training that offered trail rides, but also a smaller kennel that had future team members that captured Barb's heart.
This was a pretty cool historical stop for today. By the way, if you're ever up this way, be sure to stop in for a meal at the Trout House. On the advice of a check out girl at WalMart we ate breakfast there this morning........DELICIOUS!!!! I was very nearly up to my waist in Eggs Benedict and Hashbrowns. Great food, reasonable prices!
