ICE AGE NATIONAL SCENIC TRAIL
2018-04-20 ICE AGE TRAIL - WHITEWATER LAKE SEGMENT
Today a friend from church and I hiked the five miles of the Whitewater Lake Segment of the Ice Age Trail located in the Kettle Moraine region of south east Wisconsin. Following John Muir's lead, we sauntered along the moraines and around the kettles through some crusted and some slushy snow, shallow, slippery mud and even over a few dry sections for about four hours. The temperature was perfect, about 40 at the outset and probably near 50 at the end with bright sunshine. It was just plain fun!
I've been thinking about, watching videos about and reading about the nearly 1200 mile Ice Age Trail for months, maybe even a couple of years. So it was great to finally set foot on it. Mike who has hiked quite a bit of the trail chose this segment to introduce me to it. Now I'm ready to do more! Thanks, Mike!
I've got to experience those kettles and moraines when there are leaves on the trees - like Spring should be.... Click here to see a map of our hike on the Whitewater lake Segment.
