Yukon Arctic Ultra: Hallucinations in a 'frozen paradise'

Snow monsters, warm tents and other visions are common at this stage
of the race .
The Yukon Arctic Ultra has reached the stage where competitors are
seeing things that aren't there.

"Last night was terrible. So many hallucinations," said Christof
Teuscher on Feb. 8 as he set out from Pelly Crossing toward Dawson
City. "Multiple times I saw a tent which I expected was the next
station. But of course there was nothing there. And all these monsters
in the snow and the trees. It's fascinating what the mind can do," he
said.
