#8 — Geneva Ann Lyon from Brightwood, Oregon.

Geneva Lyon (pronounced je-NEE-vuh LY-awn) says that she’s “always loved dogs and all animals.” Born and raised in Oregon, she grew up snowboarding, then got into skijoring, and fell in love with driving a dog team. She and her husband Tim, stepson Dillon, and 3-year old daughter Shade live and train on and around Mt. Hood in Oregon. 2019 will be Geneva’s 15th season running dogs, her 8th year racing, and her very first time running in Wyoming.
