Eye on the Jr. – Running to Willow

The Jr. Iditarod mushers are back on the trail heading to Willow and the finish line.  Julia Cross lead all mushers into Yentna and departed at 03:44 to lead all mushers to Willow.  Trailbreakers departed before the mushers.  Measurable snow fell during the night to create a winter wonderland.  Yentna reported 16 inches and Eagle Song reported 2 feet.

All teams are back on the trail.  Bjorn Keller, the final musher to depart the halfway checkpoint brought his team onto the river at 05:46
