A Canadian mushing trip to remember


SOUTH RIVER, Ontario -- Ryan Smith is only 13, but he knew he was creating a long-lasting memory when he went dogsledding on the border of Algonquin Provincial Park.

"It was an awesome experience I will enjoy looking back on and sharing with my grandchildren," said Smith, an eighth-grader at Derby Middle School in Birmingham.

Smith accompanied eight other Boy Scouts from Birmingham Troop 1034 and five fathers on a two-day, 50-mile dogsledding expedition in northern Ontario. The excursion included an overnight stay in two prospector tents with wood-burning stoves, sheltered from steady snowfall and subzero temperatures. more...
