We are a full twenty-four hours into the 49th Last Great Race. Iditarod mushers and their dog teams are now in the Alaska Range making their advance to Rohn. The top 25 mushers have all made it to Rainy Pass.
Despite the warmer temperatures, mushers like Nicolas Petit seem to be advancing quickly. Nicolas Petit is the first musher to arrive to the Rohn checkpoint.
