Yukon Quest - Carmacks

Dogs from the team of Nathaniel Hamlyn, a 24-year-old Quest veteran from Whitehorse, Yukon, cuddle for warmth at Carmacks Checkpoint. Because of bad trail conditions mushers trucked their teams from Braeburn Checkpoint to Carmacks, which meant mushers could use handlers and dog trucks at Carmacks. Typically outside help is only allowed at the halfway point of Dawson.
