Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race
The Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race, a qualifying race for the Iditarod and Yukon Quest, was held Jan. 23 through 26 in the Wallowa Mountains in Northeastern Oregon. For the first time in the race's history a woman, Laura Daugereau of Kingston, Wash., won the long race (the course is normally 200 miles, but this year it was shortened to 150 miles due to the weather).
