Photos: Nic Petit is the first musher to the coast

Unalakleet is the first checkpoint on Norton Sound, the point at which the Iditarod reaches the coast. Nicolas Petit was the first musher in the 2018 Iditarod to reach Unalakleet. He is joined by competitors as they all make their bid for the race win. The trail to Nome is still more than 250 miles.
