On March 11th this year June suggested we go to the Mountsberg Conservation Area to experience their Maple Towne maple syrup event. It was a gorgeous day, so it was quite busy... but we had a great time, so we will definitely go back again sometime.
They had more than just trees and maple syrup: They had a barn full of animals (you may have already seen the photos of Aila petting a goat on Facebook), a barn full of hay for the bigger kids to play in, and they have a "Raptor Centre" where they have demonstrations of birds of prey.
This is a photo of a young bald eagle and his handler. We also got to see a snowy owl, and we ate some pancakes with fresh maple syrup.
Technical details: This photo was taken with my 5D Mark II + EF 70-300 IS at 160mm, ISO 100, f/5.6 for 1/400th of a second.
