White Mountain

I believe I have found the most beautiful place on earth!Cover_1

White Mountain elementary school sits on top of hill overlooking the Bering Sea with a view of the mountains on three sides. I arrived to school on a snow machine today driven by Gary Paulsen. What a treat!

There are about 180 people in the village. The school has 49 students grades k-12. Inupiag is the culture of the natives who live here. Some of the villagers caught fresh king crab for our dinner this evening.

White Mountain is the checkpoint where the mushers and dogs are required to rest for 8 hours. I will be ready with my camera to bring you the latest news.

Right now, musher Mitch Seavey is feeling quite tired and frustrated with the strong winds and lack of snow on the trail.

We will head to Nome tomorrow to see the finish.

Bye for now.

Love,

Mrs. Cater
