Story49: Two Tales From the Trail

Wearing the same winter gear as when she ran the race, Kirsten Bey stands on stage at the Nome Elementary School to recount her experience of running the Yukon Quest.

In Western Alaska, it’s not just winter, it’s mushing season. This month on Story49, hear two tales from the trail.

Kirsten Bey and Rick Anderson told their stories live at the Nome Arts Council’s annual event, “Tales From Around the Woodstove.” Listen above for more.
