March Children’s Choice: Sled Dogs

March is always an odd month, as Winter sees itself out and Spring comes strolling in. The warming weather gets us all itchy to get out of our houses, but there’s still the threat of a late season snowstorm to trap us all inside. In Alaska, March means the world’s most famous sled-dog race is soon to begin. This year’s Iditarod kicks off on the 3rd in downtown Anchorage before trekking nearly 1,000 miles to the finish line in Nome.
