Facing the Devil’s Punchbowl

What sounds more like a bad hangover is by far one oof the most magical places in our province of Manitoba. In Spruce Woods Provincial Park there are the Spirit Sands – a dessert both by looks with all the sand dunes left by the receding glaciers of ages gone, but also in terms of […]
