Videos are still a new thing I’m playing around with and I have plenty to learn about what works and what doesn’t work. I’d welcome any suggestions as well.

    1. It really was, especially from Lake Magog to Marvel Lake. I’d recommend a few nights at Lake Magog to really take it all in. Something we’ll have to do next time we are there.
