I visited Spirit Sands for the first time in 2007. It’s unique in Manitoba and has very special significance to Aboriginal People in the area. Also known as the Carberry sandhills, Spirit Sands is a small, semi-arid desert located in Spruce Woods Provincial Park, Canada. The sandhills are home to many unique plants and animals, including some cacti and hognose snakes. The area receives an average of 300 mm of precipitation per year.
