Two sled dog teams wind their way through the trees between Finger Lake and Rainy Pass. Official Iditarod rules require each musher to carry a cold weather sleeping bag, axe, snowshoes, eight booties for each dog, boiler, fuel, veterinarian notebook, cable for securing a dog team, a non-chafing harness for each dog and adequate emergency dog food. Although a GPS is allowed, cell phones or other two-way devices are illegal.
