Yukon Quest - Jim Lanier

Jim Lanier greets his dogs Jesus, left, and Almond, right, the day before he embarks on the 2019 Yukon Quest. At age 78 Lanier is possibly the oldest musher to ever start the grueling 1,000-mile sled dog race. Although he’s a rookie, Lanier has completed the Iditarod 16 times, most recently in 2013.
