I just recently finished the Yukon Quest 300 and I feel compelled to write a letter to let everyone know the incredible job the Canadian Rangers have done with the Quest trail on the Canadian side of the race.

Granted, I only saw the trail from Whitehorse to Pelly Crossing, but it was the best marked and most exciting 300 miles of trail that I have ever had the pleasure to put beneath my team. I can only equate it to winning the lottery and getting to take a flight in space.

I hope that the general public doesn’t think that these men and women just start their machines and drive from point A to point B. Some of the obstacles, drops, climbs and jumbles made me shake my head and wonder, “How on Earth did they do that with a snowmachine?”

We are fortunate to have a group of people that are so dedicated to providing a safe trail for us and our dogs.
