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 dogsā€™ speed. Many local volunteers assisted with dog handling and other race duties.
