John Beargrease 000
This year was the 30th running of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. I think it was also the coldest. Yesterday Karla and I went to Devil Track Lake to watch some of the teams come into the checkpoint. When we arrived the wind chills were 50 below. Schools all across Minnesota were closed. It was hard to imagine spending the night on the back of a sled in those kinds of conditions. As the teams crossed the lake the wind picked up snow making it difficult to see across the lake.
