The sun sets in Unalakleet. The leg between Kaltag and Unalakleet is approximately 85 miles and marks the major transition from the inland river area to the Bering Sea coast. Being one of the larger checkpoint towns, it is a major hub for Iditarod logistics and volunteers and has a big enough airport to accommodate large aircraft. Most of the volunteers stay in a gym in town and cook for themselves and the mushers.
