Heritage Tree Spirit

This sprawling Manitoba Maple at the Dunvegan Historical Site is a listed Heritage Tree.  It seems this gnarly grouping is protected by more than the government: if you stand in just the right place on a wintery day, you can see an animal spirit, a dog or a wolf, on guard.  This is where children like to play, even though they aren’t supposed to… they sit on this branch, possibly imagining a dinosaur or a train, but few would picture this.
