Jan Steves was the first musher there, and it was a pleasure to visit with her. She loves her dogs so much, and she started mushing in 2009. Wow!
She was also the Red Lantern winner her rookie year; which is the coolest thing! I snapped a photo of the official red lantern trophy in the headquarters. I love the idea that the last musher is honored in this way. It is not when you finish, but that you tried that matters! She answered some questions I had, and I so appreciated her time! Here is the link to her bio, photo and video below:
