Join Iditarod Musher Paul Gebhardt in support of the Soldotna Rotary Club’s

“Rotary To Rural Program”

Funding immunization kits to rural Alaskan Villages

 

Dog Mushing is Alaska’s Official State Sport – and is something we embrace wholeheartedly through our involvement in sled dog racing. Paul is a well-known competitive musher, and has an impressive race record. In addition to providing accommodations at Aspen Hollow Lodging, we also have a kennel of fifty Alaskan Huskies at "Morning View Kennel", located on adjacent acreage at our private residence.

Paul poses with puppies from his kennel in Kasilof, Alaska.

 

As a top Iditarod contender, Paul has traveled throughout the state, and has seen first hand the challenges rural Alaskan villages have.  The Rotary To Rural Program serves to provide kits for mass immunization, including elements such as the critical temperature gauges that will assure vaccines maintain safe ranges. 

 

Without these, thousands of dollars in life-saving vaccines are lost, due to refrigeration units that are not adequately monitored.

The Race Starts March 7th, 2009

The Last Great Race on Earth

You can’t compare it to any other competitive event in the world! A race over 1150 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer. She throws jagged mountain ranges, frozen river, dense forest, desolate tundra and miles of windswept coast at the mushers and their dog teams. Add to that temperatures far below zero, winds that can cause a complete loss of visibility, the hazards of overflow, long hours of darkness and treacherous climbs and side hills, and you have the Iditarod. A race extraordinaire, a race only possible in Alaska.

From Anchorage, in south central Alaska, to Nome on the western Bering Sea coast, each team of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover over 1150 miles in 10 to 17 days.

It has been called the “Last Great Race on Earth” and it has won worldwide acclaim and interest. German, Spanish, British, Japanese and American film crews have covered the event. Journalists from outdoor magazines, adventure magazines, newspapers and wire services flock to Anchorage and Nome to record the excitement. It’s not just a dog sled race, it’s a race in which unique men and woman compete. Mushers enter from all walks of life. Fishermen, lawyers, doctors, miners, artists, natives, Canadians, Swiss, French and others; men and women each with their own story, each with their own reasons for going the distance. It’s a race organized and run primarily by volunteers, thousands of volunteers, men and women, students and village residents. They man headquarters at Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Nome and Wasilla. They fly volunteers, veterinarians, dog food and supplies. They act as checkers, coordinators, and family supporters of each musher.

The Spirit of Alaska!

More Than a Race…

It’s a Commemoration

The race pits man and animal against nature, against wild Alaska at her best and as each mile is covered, a tribute to Alaska’s past is issued.

The Iditarod is a tie to — a commemoration of — that colorful past.

The Iditarod Trail, now a National Historic Trail, had its beginnings as a mail and supply route from the coastal towns of Seward and Knik to the interior mining camps at Flat, Ophir, Ruby and beyond to the west coast communities of Unalakleet, Elim, Golovin, White Mountain and Nome. Mail and supplies went in. Gold came out. All via dog sled. Heroes were made, legends were born.

In 1925, part of the Iditarod Trail became a life saving highway for epidemic-stricken Nome. Diphtheria threatened and serum had to be brought in; again by intrepid dog mushers and their faithful hard-driving dogs.

The Iditarod is a commemoration of those yesterdays, a not-so-distant past that Alaskans honor and are proud of.

An Event for All Alaska

Anchorage is the starting line — a city of over 250,000 people, street lights, freeways and traffic. From there the field of dog teams which grow in number each year, runs to Eagle River, Checkpoint # 1. After a restart in the Matanuska Valley at Wasilla, the mushers leave the land of highways and bustling activity and head out to the Yentna Station Roadhouse and Skwentna and then up! Through Finger Lake, Rainy Pass, over the Alaska Range and down the other side to the Kuskokwim River — Rohn Roadhouse, Nikolai, McGrath, Ophir, Cripple, Iditarod and on to the mighty Yukon — a river highway that takes the teams west through the arctic tundra.

The race route is alternated every other year, one year going north through Cripple, Ruby and Galena, the next year south through Iditarod, Shageluk, Anvik.

Finally, they’re on the coast — Unalakleet, Shaktoolik, Koyuk, Elim, Golovin, White Mountain and into Nome where a hero’s welcome is the custom for musher number 1 or 61!

The route encompasses large metropolitan areas and small native villages. It causes a yearly spurt of activity, increased airplane traffic and excitement to areas otherwise quiet and dormant during the long Alaskan winter. Everyone gets involved, from very young school children to the old timers who relive the colorful Alaskan past they’ve known as they watch each musher and his team. The race is an educational opportunity and an economic stimulus to these small Alaskan outposts.

The “I” logo, a trademark of the Iditarod Trail Committee, Inc. and the Iditarod Race, was designed by Alaskan artist Bill DeVine in the early years of the race. The design is done on a white background with blue thread for the dog and inner outline. The Outer outline is done in red. The design is used on a shield in some instances and that variation was used on wooden trail markers in the earlier races.

On the Trail

Every musher has a different tactic. Each one has a special menu for feeding and snacking the dogs. Each one has a different strategy — some run in the daylight, some run at night. Each one has a different training schedule and his own ideas on dog care, dog stamina and his own personal ability.

The rules of the race lay out certain regulations which each musher must abide by. There are certain pieces of equipment each team must have — an arctic parka, a heavy sleeping bag, an ax, snowshoes, musher food, dog food and boots for each dog’s feet to protect against cutting ice and hard packed snow injuries.

Some mushers spend an entire year getting ready and raising the money needed to get to Nome. Some prepare around a full-time job. In addition to planning the equipment and feeding needs for up to three weeks on the trail, hundreds of hours and hundreds of miles of training have to be put on each team.

There are names which are automatically associated with the race — Joe Redington, Sr., co-founder of the classic and affectionately know as “Father of the Iditarod.” Rick Swenson from Two River, Alaska, the only five time winner, the only musher to have entered 20 Iditarod races and never finished out of the top ten. Dick Mackey from Nenana who beat Swenson by one second in 1978 to achieve the impossible photo finish after two weeks on the trail. Norman Vaughan who at the age of 88 has finished the race four times and led an expedition to Antarctica in the winter of 93–94. Four time winner, Susan Butcher, was the first woman to ever place in the top 10. And of course, Libby Riddles, the first woman to win the Iditarod in 1985.

There are others — Herbie Nayokpuk, Shishmaref; Emmitt Peters, Ruby, whose record set in 1975 was not broken until 1980, when Joe May, Trapper Creek, knocked seven hours off the record… the flying Anderson’s, Babe and Eep, from McGrath.. Rick Mackey, who wearing his father Dick’s winning #13, crossed the finish line first in 1983, making them the only father and son to have both won an Iditarod… Joe Runyan, 1989 champion and the only musher to have won the Alpirod (European long distance race), the Yukon Quest, (long distance race between Fairbanks and Whitehorse, YT) and the Iditarod… Terry Adkins, retired from the United States Air Force, the only veterinarian on the first Iditarod and one of the two musher to have completed 20 out of 23 Iditarods. (The other is Rick Swenson.) The list goes on, each name bringing with it a tale of adventure, a feeling of accomplishment, a touch of hero. Each musher, whether in the top ten, or winner of the Red Lantern (last place) has accomplished a feat few dare to attempt. Each has gone the distance and established a place for their team in the annals of Iditarod lore.

Wasilla duo wins Iron Dog

By TIM MOWRY
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
Published on Saturday, February 14, 2009 10:53 PM AKST

FAIRBANKS — When he saw Tyler Aklestad’s body sprawled out on the Tanana River ice on Saturday, Todd Minnick prepared to do what any Tesoro Iron Dog racer would do — stop and help.

It didn’t matter that Aklestad and Minnick were battling for the lead of the world’s longest snowmachine race only 100 miles from the finish line and were separated by only a matter of seconds after almost 1,900 miles of racing.
If a fellow Iron Dogger is in trouble, you stop, even if the title is on the line.

Johnny Wagner/News-Miner Nick Olstad speaks to his grandparents over a cellular phone wedged in his balaclava after he and teammate Todd Minnick won the 2009 Tesoro Iron Dog on Saturday afternoon, February 14, 2009, at the ceremonial finish downtown on the Chena River.

“I seen Tyler laying on the ice and I turned to go over there to see if he was OK,” Minnick said.

The next thing he knew, Minnick and his snowmachine were “cartwheeling” down the river, having hit the same three-foot high wind drift that Aklestad did. He landed on the frozen ice not far from Aklestad.
“There we were, both laid out on the river,” Minnick said.

Like two boxers who had each landed a big punch and gone down at the same time, both Minnick and Aklestad pulled themselves up off the ice for one final flurry that will go down as one of the most exciting Iron Dog finishes in the 25-year history of the race.

Riding a pair of Polaris Dragons, Minnick, 29, and Olstad, 23, held on to win the Iron Dog in record time, edging the Ski-Doo team of Aklestad and Tyson Johnson by just 3 minutes, 18 seconds.

Their time of 37 hours, 19 minutes, and 8 seconds over the 1,971-mile trail shattered the previous course record of 38:07:57.

“We finally did it,” Minnick said, accepting a victory hug from Wasilla friend Gov. Sarah Palin, who was at the Chena River finish line in downtown Fairbanks waiting for her husband, Todd, who finished in sixth place with partner Scott Davis.

It was Minnick’s first Iron Dog win in 10 tries while Olstad, also of Wasilla, earned his second Iron Dog crown. The victory, worth $25,000 of the $160,000 purse, also broke a four-year reign by Arctic Cat racers. The last time a pair of Polaris riders claimed top Iron Dog honor was 2001.

“We rode ‘em hard,” Minnick said of the black, red and white 600cc Polaris Dragons he and Olstad drove to victory.

More than half of the windshield on Minnick’s machine was missing as a result of his crash between Manley and Nenana.

“It was pretty pristine before that,” Minnick said of his sled.
Davis, who with Palin set the previous course record in 2007, wasn’t surprised to see the record fall. Trail conditions were near-perfect this year with a layer of fresh snow cushioning the trail the entire way.

“I’ve never seen it that fast,” said Davis, who finished almost four hours behind.
The second team to leave the starting line, Minnick and Olstad led the race almost from wire to wire. They took the lead about five miles from the starting line held it for the next 1,700 miles. They led Aklestad and Johnson by 38 minutes at the halfway point in Nome.

“There was a lot of pressure leading the whole time,” Minnick acknowledged. “We couldn’t slack off at all.”

It wasn’t until  Thursday on the 120-mile run from Ruby to Tanana on the Yukon River that Aklestad and Johnson, who had been slowly closing the gap on Minnick and Olstad, caught up and passed them briefly.

Only 1 minutes, 42 seconds separated the two teams when they left Tanana on Saturday for the final 232 miles to the finish in Fairbanks.

Minnick and Olstad maintained their slim lead for the first 100 miles Aklestad and Johnson caught and passed them about 30 miles out of Manley while Olstad was stopped.

Minnick and Olstad re-took the lead after both Aklestad and Minnick crashed. Aklestad hit the snow drift first and he was traveling faster than Minnick. Aklestad estimated he was traveling about 80 mph when he hit what he described as “a really bad wind drift on an open section of trail that I hit way too hard.”

Aklestad’s Ski-Doo landed on upright on its back end and the impact stretched his track out, he said. After that, the track was “bubbling up” at high speeds, forcing Aklestad and Johnson to back off, Aklestad said.

Even so, Aklestad and Johnson managed to re-take the lead when Olstad was forced to briefly stop again.

But Minnick and Olstad caught up and passed them about 25 miles from Nenana and led into the final fuel stop. They left Nenana a minute ahead of Aklestad and Johnson and managed to stretch their lead by another two minutes enroute to Fairbanks.

“We pushed as hard as we could but we couldn’t catch them,” Johnson said. “Our only hope was that they blew a belt or something.”
Even when Aklestad and Johnson passed them on Friday and again on Saturday, Minnick said he and Olstad never panicked.

“We knew our machines were faster on top end speed and that’s how it worked out,” Minnick said.

For the soft-spoken Olstad, it was his second Iron Dog victory. He won with Marc McKenna as a rookie in 2005. Olstad has finished the race twice in five tries, both times as a champion, but he seemed happier for Minnick than himself.

“I’m glad Todd could get one,” Olstad said.
For the snake-bitten duo of Aklestad, 23, and Johnson, 29, it was their second runner-up finish in the last three years. They placed second in 2007, too, the only other year in the five they raced together that they have finished the race. They did everything they could to win, Johnson said.

“Any other year we probably would have been hours ahead if it wasn’t for those guys,” Johnson said of Minnick and Olstad. “We pushed it as hard as we could.”

The fact that they beat the course record by 45 minutes didn’t ease the disappointment of finishing second.
“That’s not what I enter the race for,” Aklestad said.
McKenna and Dusty Van Meter finished in third place, 47 minutes and 2 seconds behind the winners, almost the identical time they trailed Minnick and Olstad  at the halfway point in Nome. Their time of 38:06:06 also broke the old course record.

“We got a half hour behind on the first day and didn’t feel like pushing hard enough to make it up was the right thing to do,” said McKenna, who won last year’s race with Eric Quam before teaming up with Van Meter, a three-time champ, this year. “Those guys in front were running hard and clean.”
Quam and his new partner, rookie Brad Helwig of Anchorage, finished in fourth place in 39:02:46, fending off a late challenge by Fairbanks’ Tyler Huntington and Mike Morgan of Nome, who finished five minutes behind Quam and Helwig at 39:57:46.

Huntington and Quam actually caught up to Quam and Helwig about 10 miles from Nenana but Huntington ran out of gas and had to stop and pour more fuel into his tank that he was carrying on his machine. The same thing happened on Friday after Huntington and Morgan passed Quam and Helwig on the way to Tanana.

“It’s kind of a heartbreaker,” said the 23-year-old Huntington, “I’m a little disappointed.”

One of the race’s top up-and-coming racers with three consecutive top seven finishes, Huntington said will be taking a break from the Iron Dog following the birth of his second child in two years.

“This is it for awhile,” he said.

Johnny Wagner/News-Miner Race fans gather around Nick Olstad, left, and Todd Minnick after the duo claimed a victory in the 2009 Tesoro Iron Dog on Saturday afternoon, February 14, 2009, at the ceremonial finish downtown on the Chena River.

Alaska Whitewater – Matanuska River, Talkeetna Mountains, Matanuska-Susitna Borough

The Matanuska River has two Rafting Companies,  Nova Alaska and Madwater Rafting, with offices located in Sutton and Chickaloon on The Glenn Highway.

 

River Rafting Trips

 

Matanuska-Susitna County, Lions Head section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III+     5.2 miles

This section of Matanuska River in Alaska is 5.2 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class III+ section of whitewater. The scenic beauty of Alaska and the water flowing gracefully down Matanuska River beats anything. Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. When you’re paddling down a Talkeetna Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. The average Alaska whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you’re visiting here do keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn’t matter, around here you won’t find a large number of other rivers. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Lions Head section is one of them. This stretch has has enough mileage, suitable for an afternoon trip.

Briefly about the general area:
During the summer, highs regularly are in the 60’s at Matanuska River. Once the sun is down it plunges down to the 40’s. Throughout the winter the highs are regularly in the 10’s, and winter nights come with lows in the-10’s to Matanuska River. Matanuska River is pretty dry regularly; most of the rain falls during July while April is the month with the least amount of precipitation.

No need to travel far to stop by interesting stuff like Matanuska Glacier.

ALPINE HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The Alpine Historical Society (AHS) is a non-profit organization established to encourage the preservation and utilization of the Sutton and Chickaloon historic resources as a cultural, economic and educational asset for the community.

As a nonprofit, the Alpine Historical Park relies on membership, in-kind donations, charitable contributions and volunteers to sustain the expenses of keeping our beautiful historical park open to the community and visitors from afar to enjoy.

The Alpine Historical Society oversees the operation of the Alpine Historical Park in Sutton, AK which is host to the “Old Timer’s Hall of Fame”.  Additionally the AHS hosts the annual Coal Miner’s Ball, the Old Timer’s community picnic, the Valley Trash Show and Shine Car Show, as well as participating in community events.

This year promises to be one of our best years.  Through the cooperation and grants from the State of Alaska,  Sutton will be getting a New Public Library.

As Board Members of the Alpine Historical Society we thank you for your support of the new Sutton Library Project.  The Alpine Historical Park located adjacent to the new library site will be sharing our facility’s infrastructure.  The Historic O’Neil House, situated on The Alpine Historical Park property has been identified as the selected site, by the Glenn Highway Byways Committee as the Glenn Highway Visitors Center.

We currently have grant money in place to continue with restoration of the O’Neill House this summer and another grant with MAT-SU HEALTHY IMPACT GRANT PROGRAM, Titled  – “A Trail to Better Health Begins in Sutton” to install lights, expand our trail system and install exercise equipment near the existing playground equipment per a recent request from the community.   We are working with the Sutton Community Council and the new Sutton library site to coordinate a safe place for our community to play and exercise for young and old. We are within walking distance of the Sutton Manor Senior Center, and Sutton Elementary.

The Sutton Public Library/Community Center is currently on the Mat-Su Borough’s Capital Improvement List which has been submitted to the Alaska State Legislature.  We are hopeful that the bill was passed, SB119 sponsored by Senator Bert Stedman and will receive funding this year.  Additionally, the Borough has included the Sutton Library on their priority list of Federal Economic Stimulus Projects, submitted to our US Congressional delegation.

Our vision is to unite with all communities along the Glenn Highway in a co-op combining all of our efforts so we all will prosper.  The purpose is to include a visible and accessible environment to our community and tourism as a focal point year round.

HISTORY

Visitors to The Alpine Historical Park will find many historical buildings with informative displays of Coal Mining, Glenn Highway Construction and Athabascan Culture.  The Park is home to the Coal Miners Hall of Fame and pictures of inductees are displayed.  Perennial flowerbeds, picnic tables and playground equipment welcome visitors to the park.

In the coal boom era of the Matanuska Valley, Alaska Central Railroad laid tracks from Seward through Sutton. The coal from the Sutton area was used to power the steam engines. The Wishbone Coal Mining Company built the “Washery” to clean the coal mined in Eska and Chickaloon mines until 1922.  The foundation of the coal washery and several pieces of historic mining equipment rest in the park.

Road builders, including many locals who still live in the area, built the Glenn Highway portion of the Alaskan-Canadian Highway in a period of months.  The park features an indoor exhibit of photographs and history of the building of this highway.

The Athabascan people of Chickaloon have maintained their traditional culture and are working with the Historical Society to interpret their history.

The Park is located in the heart of the Matanuska Valley on the Glenn Highway at Mile 61.6 in Sutton, Alaska.  The Park sits on 6.6 acres bordering the powerful Matanuska River.  It is just 14 miles from Palmer and a beautiful one-hour drive from Anchorage.
