Highlights of the IronLine Sled Dog Races

Joann Fortier and her team captured first place in the 10-dog, pro-class race at the fifth annual IronLine Sled Dog Races Feb. 3-4 in Iron River. Fortier, like other mushers, said the trail was hard and fast, requiring effort to control the dogs’ speed. Many local volunteers assisted with dog handling and other race duties.
