I want to take my family snowshoeing so bad! No snowshoes though.

I went to Bonshaw Trails, and Strathgartney last year. Both were great!

Last time out we went to an old unplowed road off the Lewis Road in Cullodon called the "New Road" Beautiful spot to snowshoe. There wasn't even a snowmobile track on it. Must admit the hills on it give you quite a workout on snowshoes - but you're surrounded by woods without a house in site. Just beautiful and so peaceful.

There is a place in eastern PEI near the Newtown Cross Road I think, I'm not sure of the precise location though--anyway, you come down off the road into the trees along a stream where there are the most beautiful hemlock trees I've seen anywhere on PEI. They're huge. We went there during Daryl Guignion's wildlife class and I fell absolutely in love with it. Does anyone know just where that is? I'd love to go back. And I wish I wasn't a giant round ball this year or I'd be snowshoeing this year too--next year we'll just have to bundle up the baby and get back to it! (Craig wouldn't be much fun as a partner this year anyway with his broken foot!) :)

That's MacPhail Woods rosalyn, it's one of my favourite spots on PEI! I think I had a bit of a spiritual moment walking through the giant hemlocks this summer along the stream, we went for one of the native plant identification classes too!

Me and the missus could show you where it was!

I didn't realize it was MacPhail woods since we basically just jumped out of the van parked along the side of the road and headed into the trees! :) It's great to know where it is though, we'd totally take you up on that offer sometime to show us where it is again! It was one of the most wonderful things I have seen in woodlands on PEI--it isn't often you get to see such mature, gorgeous trees. I can absolutely imagine having a spiritual moment there, they hit me the most in quiet natural spots like that! The snow was completely untouched powder and it was silent except for a few birds. I loved it. I'd love to show it to Craig, and as soon as this little baby makes his/her appearance I completely plan on starting the tree identification early on so we'll have to get out there. :)

We actually have a hemlock of similar size in Emyvale (we're guessing it's maybe 300 years old...) on the family land so when I need some natural inspiration I can go hang out under it.

The Nordic centre at Brookvale rents shoes at a rate of $7 per pair for four hours.
