Skywatch Friday from Duluth

The John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon I posted about a few days ago ended yesterday with the closest finish in the marathon's history: winner was Ryan Anderson of Ray, Minnesota and Defending champion Nathan Schroeder of Chisholm crossed the finish line just behind him.

My pics show how clear and cold the day was with a bright blue Minnesota sky.
See more beautiful skies at SkywatchFriday.

Then tune in to the YouTube Video below of both the two and four-legged finishers.

Happy Friday!

Sure does look cold.. Here in Ohio sky has been either blue or gray.. no in between

Fun photos for Sky Watching, somehow I think the cold makes the sky just that little bit bluer and crisper. Have a great weekend.

Your sky sure was Blue..but always good to see an occasional cloud floating by.
Your skies are much like the Big Sky country of Montana.

Very interesting!
I love dogs and have three Siberian Husky, I'd love to have a good marathon to untie dog with my dogs, but here where I live it makes little snow.

A greeting and happy weekend!!!

The colder the weather, the brighter the sky--is that how it works?


Sky by day or sky by night,
You are always my delight,
For in blaze or subtle hue,
Sky, my heart belongs to you.

What kind of day is it for the dogs after the race is over? I mean do they get special meals or treats or anything different?
