Final writing assignment
Dear mom and dad,
One reason why I want to go to Alaska is the iditarod is there! The race is really long. And there is lots of snow. How cool would that be?
There is lots of history of the race. The first iditarod was in 1973 in Alaska. The first people to live on the iditarod trails were the Eskimos and Inuit people. Gold was discovered in Alaska (gold rush).
The weather is ok, there is snow blankets and blizzards. Also ice covers miles and miles of water and other body’s of water. It’s not like Hawaii but it’s awesome.
The geography and mountains are big. There’s the Alaska Range and the brook. Also one of the rivers is the Yukon. We will drive over the mountains if we go.
There are about 100 teams for the iditarod every year, but some drop out in the middle of the race! One of the mushers is warren palfrey he is good. On teams there is different types of dogs. There are mostly huskies.
Last I really hope we can go to Alaska. There is the iditarod to remind you. And the snow is so cool.
