Cleaning up Front Street

Every year, Front Street in Nome, Alaska, is transformed into the finish for the Iditarod. Snow is put down, and the famous "burled arch" is put in place. We "Idita-addicts" wear out our index fingers hitting F5 on the on-line Nome Cam to see if we can spot a dogsled coming in. Often all we see is a crowd of people under the arch welcoming the musher and team. The day after the last musher arrives, the street returns to normal. It's always sad to see it come down--kind of like the day after Christmas. But it's interesting to watch the Nome Cam throughout the day and watch the progress as Front Street becomes a street again. Here are some shots from the cam. You can even see the burled arch being hauled away:
