Just in case, though, the boys and I hiked around the land marking sugar maples. They are easier to find when the leaves are still on, so you need to mark them in the fall. Tapping for syrup happens in the winter.
I won a pair of Oboz boots at GoFest this year, from a drawing that Walkabout Outfitters did, which I love.
Readers, do you know what a sugar maple tree looks like?
