A Bering Sea storm that settled over the Iditarod Trail hammered home the old Alaska flying adage, "If you don't like the weather, just wait," while reinforcing how intertwined aviation and "The Last Great Race" have become.Alice Rogoff, Burke Mees
The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race made its last stop on the Yukon River, at the village of Kaltag, mid-day Saturday with Martin Buser hanging on for dear life to a lead that had shrunk from five hours to maybe half an hour in the last half-day of racing.
After a slow, grueling run to Eagle Island during the day on Friday, Martin Buser's race for a fifth Iditarod crown may be toast. Other frontrunning teams sense blood in the water and are gaining on the Big Lake musher. Zack Steer
