Wed, 2012-08-15

Alaska is vast, still mostly roadless and wild, and stunningly beautiful. The Kenai Peninsula has the largest number, greatest concentration, and most diverse range of hiking environments in the state. The Kenai, as it is known locally, is itself huge, containing an ice field larger than the state of Rhode Island. The Kenai offers coastal, forest, subalpine, tundra, and even glacial hiking opportunities.

Iditarod officials quickly whisked him away. The usual finish-line interview with the winner couldn't be heard over a public address system that either wasn't turned up or was malfunctioning. Seavey, 53, last won in 2004, and some had begun to dismiss him as a one-time wonder. His son, Dallas, won last year and Mitch was back in seventh.
