The mushers have reached the halfway mark in the race. They're now in the Canadian Yukon. And Emily Schwing of member station KUAC has been following the race since its start in Fairbanks, Alaska.<p>EMILY SCHWING, BYLINE: It's an unseasonably warm 30 degrees as 13 huskies line out in front of a sled packed full with gear. The dogs wear red harnesses and black booties on their feet and they howl with excitement. Sat, 11 Feb 2012 13:00:00 +0000 Emily Schwing 239 at http://wrti.org
