Plaines d'Abraham, Quebec City

In what I am sure is a hallmark of Canadian cities, just outside the citadel lay the Plaines d'Abraham, the site of an historic battle between the British and the French cultivated into sprawling parkland. The Battlefields Park is sparse on trees but this only serves to make it into the ideal inner-city snowshoeing destination in winter. I missed out on Quebec snow by only that [ ] much and I would dearly love to head back for a Christmas!
