Iditarod 2003: The journey to Nome

SUN JOURNAL

February 28, 2003

The famed iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race begins tomorrow with a ceremonial opening in Anchorage -- despite bad weather. Good weather for sled dogs is lots of snow, and this year there isn't any. Temperatures around Anchorage have been in the high 30s. So the race has been rerouted, with the real start Monday in Fairbanks instead of Wasillla. And the 65 mushers and their dogs won't even go through iditarod.
