Before his death in 1917, Painter Tom Thomson is known to have embarked on nocturnal snowshoe adventures down Rosedale Valley towards the Don River. I wanted to see if it is still possible to follow in what I imagine are Thomson’s showshoe-steps, 100 years later. So, two weeks ago, I bought my first pair of snowshoes.

I had a brief rest at the top of the world, with the hum of the DVP and Bayview in the distance and the lights of Rosedale mansions flicking through the trees along the top of the surrounding hills.
