Sand dunes shifting on the whim of the wind; unlikely plants
like the pincushion cactus; and strange creatures like the hognose
snake cause one to wonder....Manitoba? This is the truly unique
Spirit Sands. Within minutes you're staring down at an eerie
blue-green oasis of spruce trees and a spring-fed pond. This
is the Devils Punch Bowl. By mid-afternoon you're enjoying the
coolness of riverbank forests, wandering through the sweet mixed-grass
prairie and lingering at the striking views from the Steels Ferry
Overlook. All of this is Spruce Woods, a unique mixture of natural
contrasts and wondrous adventures.
