Make Way For The Gichigami Express

The mushers will be out in force in Grand Portage as Sunday marks the start of the inaugural Gichigami Express sled dog race.  Organizer Jack Stone says the race is a three day affair which will follow a route within Cook County that will include Grand Portage, the Gunflint Trail and Grand Marais.    It will follow the trail routes that were used by the fur traders in the settlement years.  The race will begin at 10 o'clock Sunday morning.
