Secret Scotchmans photo exhibit opens at Laughing Dog Brewery February 4

Laughing Dog Brewing hosts an exhibition of photographs taken last August when eight hikers participated in a backpacking trip across the Scotchmans. This trip was also a photography workshop with volunteer professional photographer Al Lemire. The exhibition takes place at the new Laughing Dog Brewing tap room (next door to Papa Murphy’s) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and some of the framed photos will be sold in a silent auction to benefit Team Laughing Dog and Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness. A slide show composed of the best of the “Secret Scotchmans” will also be displayed. Team Laughing Dog is a bicycle racing team raising money for autism research; their Race Across America takes place in June.
