The mazes we've generated to this point have been dense mazes, filling the available grid. Not all mazes need to do so, however. For example, if we wanted to represent a cave system with a random maze, we probably wouldn't want the passages packed in as tightly as possible.

For this exercise, we want a sparse maze. We do this by cutting dead ends back, trimming them down, and leaving gaps in our maze like this:
