Mascot Rondy from the annual Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage Alaska
In February two years ago my husband and I participated in the Fur Rondy by running (him) and walking (me) in the Frostbite Footrace. For a week each winter Anchorage becomes a celebration which originated from the traditional trek by fur trappers to sell their furs. Though furs are still displayed and sold, the event has now become an annual Winter Festival. This year's festival is in full swing, having begun Feb 26. Click here to view some Rondy photos. While there don't miss the link to the snow sculpture photos. Some of them are magnificent.
