At left is Fox (the team's experienced leader), and next is Balto, who actually led the team (at Kaasen's choice). The third dog's identity is unknown. http://www.baltostruestory.net/apps/photos/photo?photoID=4411533 4411533 Gunnar Kaasen and Balto posing, probably in Nome. This photo, signed by Kaasen, reads "Sincerely to Rita, Gunnar Kaasen & Balto, Nome Alaska, Dec. 1925". Obviously this was given by Kaasen to a friend sometime after the serum run. http://www.baltostruestory.net/apps/photos/photo?photoID=4411979 4411979
