Toronto Students on Crow Wing Trail
Pictures of O Roseau guests taking in the swinging bridge. These students from Toronto are taking a Conversational French Course at the University of St. Boniface. They have been going to O Roseau for the past three years due to their history programming on the importance of the Roseau River and the Crow Wing Trail as important transportation routes. This year , they have guided over 200 people to the bridge and there are more to come. Thanks to Trail Boss Wayne and his helper for the timely maintenance and for President Murielle for the new web site. Both ensure a great time on the trail.
