NEWSFor the CCW KETCHIKAN - In Interior Alaska, it is not uncommon to find a team of dogs pulling a sled loaded with a well-bundled musher along any given stretch of open road or trail. At the very least, one is likely to see a truck with a makeshift dog kennel built onto its bed. It was just this kind of Interior Alaska experience that first piqued the interest of Angie Taggart, a Southeast Alaskan raised in Ketchikan, in dog mushing. That initial interest built over many years from an enjoyment in watching the races to a desire to run the Iditarod in the spring of 2011.
