BAKER WINS

text by David Dodman

The state of Alaska is about to have a very good day. John Baker has just won Iditarod 39.

The Kotzebue musher, an Alaska Native with strong roots both in rural Alaska and in the Iditarod itself, has just crossed the finish line in Nome with 10 dogs.

Congratulations to John Baker: your Iditarod 2011 champion!
