If you want to see mushers cross the finish line at the world's most famous sled dog race in March 2014, better make your reservations soon. There aren’t many hotel rooms available at the end of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Nome, leaving mushers and their families battling with fans, tourists and volunteers for a place to sleep.
