The dog sled team was training for the Iditarod.
When we got to Chena Indian Village, we got off of the boat for a tour. The dog team's musher talked about their training, etc. and let us pet the dogs.

In the afternoon on the same day, we went to Gold Dredge 8 for a tour and to pan for some gold.
We started at the Tanana Valley Railroad station near the pipeline and got on a replica train to go to Gold Dredge No. 8.
Because of where we were sitting on the train, our photos of the gold dredge are pretty obstructed, so I pulled this one from another web site:

We finished the day with dinner at The Pump House restaurant on the river. Ed had seafood chowder and reindeer tenderloin with mashed sweet potatoes and vegetables. I had a salad and elk meatloaf (wrapped in bacon) with mashed potatoes and vegetables.
