The run to Ruby saw fair skies with little snow. While the temperatures dipped to 42 below zero in the valleys and ten below on the hills, the mushers had generally good weather. Blinding snow storms are the scourge of every dog musher. Ali Zircle headed down the trail out of the village of Ruby while Mike Seavy, Dallas Seavy, John Baker and Aaron Burmeister arrived at the Yukon River village. With four mushers hard on her trail Ali’s dogs are running well.
