Project Overview
Charlotte Wolf, dog sled musher from Brainerd, presented a brief history of dog sledding in Minnesota; the connection with the Iditarod in Alaska and its history; and show and tell of equipment, clothing, and tools used in dog sledding. She brought one of her dogs to show how they work and--when weather allowed--dog sled rides were given.
