2. Camas County Mushers (Idaho)

It’s not Alaska, but Fairfield, Idaho (home of Camas County High School) does average over 60 inches of snow per year, and mushing is one efficient way to get around during winter in the rural town of 567 people.

14. Omaha Benson Mighty Bunnies (Nebraska)

You’re probably thinking the same thing we are: Isn’t “Mighty” implied when discussing Bunnies?
