Bethel Rookie Jessica Klejka is making a fine showing on the Iditarod as she runs her team of 11 dogs up the Yukon. She was on her way to Eagle Island on Sunday morning, approaching the last segment of the run on the river.

KNOM's Ben Matheson talked to her yesterday in Shageluk after making it past the notorious tussocks around Iditarod.
