At the resting spot Anik pulled out 'magic carpets' (plastic sheets to sledge on) allowing us to sledge down the powder whilst she boiled maple syrup to make Taffys in the snow after. Sledging down was great fun, but the hardest part was walking back with no snow shoes... I sunk to my hip and it was near impossible to stand let alone walk! The walk had some lovely views and ...
