A husky standing on a rough trail survey the distance. His legs are spead apart and the trace is hanging from his back. His tongue is sticking out of his mouth and he looks as if he is panting. He stands on a natural rock out cropping. A low relief plaque on the rock below depicts a sled and six dogs with Balto in the lead.
