Pete and the Team left Rainy Pass after a 4 hour break on the trail to Rohn. By taking a break during the heat of the day, they will be running at dusk through the Dalzell Gorge. They won’t have the visibility, but will get the advantage of cooler temperatures. Many mushers are now leaving Rainy with probably the same idea.
DELTA FORCE UPDATE-
Pete Kaiser- Out of Rainy Pass 16:46 Dogs 15 – Dropped 1 at Finger Lake
Mike Sr.- Resting Rainy Pass
