Ice Age Trail Scuppernong 4.10.21

Should we, shouldn’t we? The forecast called for rain, but hey, we have gear, let’s do it!

Ice Age Trail: Blue Spring Lake 4.3.21

It FINALLY was starting to feel like spring in Wisconsin and I couldn’t wait to get out and hike. I was on a mission to find some spring wildflowers.

Milwaukee Urban Hike 3.21.21

Maybe it’s muddy, maybe you don’t have time to drive far or maybe hitting a dirt trail isn’t your thing, you can still get outside and explore Milwaukee! This trail follows Lake Michigan and goes past iconic Milwaukee architecture.

How to Clean Hiking Boots

So, this could have been called “A Tale of Two Boots” or even “How do I clean my hiking boots when one has been completely submerged in mud?” Because yep, that’s what happened.

Ice Age Trail: Stony Ridge Segment 3.12.21

There was a TON of snow that melted from last weekend and we were looking for a segment that had a lot of open area, hoping it would be somewhat dry. This trail exceeded my expectations!

Ice Age Trail: Milwaukee River Segment 3.6.21

We started the hike and early on, there were hills all around us. We were walking on a ridge and I was so excited, hoping this hilly landscape would stay with us for the duration.

Ice Age Trail: LaBudde Creek Segment 2.27.21

Another sunny day and I couldn’t wait to get out and hike. Forecast promised highs in the mid-40’s and after the early frigid February, I was ready!

Ice Age Trail: Eagle Segment 2.20.21

Aaaah! Forecast called for a sunny day so we sought the most open trail we had been on yet. With open prairie most of the trail, the sun felt amazing.

Kletzsch Park 2.13.21

Did you ever notice how many F words describe the cold? Frigid, frosty, frozen, freezing, frost and yes….February!

Doctor’s Park 2.6.21

It was 13 degrees and the “feels like” was -3. So, the weekend 5 was here, no plans, no excuses not go…except for the cold.
