In case you don’t know, weather in Wisconsin is nuts. Two weeks ago, temps hit 90 degrees. Then Monday morning, we woke up to snow covering the ground. I’m just hoping things balance out soon – I want winter to go away.
After a rainy Friday, Jason and I headed out for a cloudy hike this afternoon. Surprisingly, the trail wasn’t too muddy. We headed to a random portion of the Ice Age Trail. Not only were we looking to hike, we decided to do some backpacking recon…just in case July’s experience spurs us to do more 🙂 .
Along the Ice Age Trail in the southern unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, there are three shelters available for through-hikers. If we find we enjoy our easy backpacking experience this July, one of these shelters would be good for a first “real” adventure. About 3/4ths of a mile into our hike, we reached our destination.
The Oleson Cabin off in the distance.
