Two-way interview with KUAC Yukon Quest Reporter Molly Rettig
KUAC's Molly Rettig and Lori Neufeld talk over the phone about the 2017 Yukon Quest that gets underway in Whitehorse this morning. The air is filled with excitement and you can hear it in the yips, barks and howls from the dogs ready to head out on the 1000-mile Yukon Quest trail to finish in Fairbanks.
Yukon Quest mushers and organizers are in final countdown mode in Whitehorse, Yukon ahead of Saturday's race start. As KUAC’s Molly Rettig reports, an unusual open lead on the Yukon River around Dawson City is complicating logistics at the midpoint of the race trail.
