2011 Iditarod Champion John Baker drives his team past the seasonal cabins along Safety Sound during the 2013 Iditarod. Baker, who holds the race record, finished the 2013 race in 21st place. In the distance, open water is visible in the ice pack of the Bering Sea.

Safety Sound

It’s hard to imagine that this spot can be one of the most unforgiving places on earth during a blizzard in the winter. The high frequency of Iditarod trail markers along Safety Sound is a good indicator that visibility in this area can be a great challenge during blinding storms.

Solomon

The midnight sun barely disappeared on the northwestern horizon in this view of Safety Sound. Barely discernible in the background are some of the houses of the village of Solomon. Just a handful of elders live here year around.
