For the past dozen or more years Elizabeth Penashue has set out on a spring walk. She goes on her snowshoes and sleeps in a Labrador canvas tent on spruce boughs. She travels with friends and many of her forty grandchildren. She knows that this journey is a way for her to show her grandchildren the sanity of being on the land. She set off yesterday for three weeks on what will be her last walk. Here are some photos I took of them setting out.
