The sea, or rather the vast river of ice


Hike 5 took us to the Ice Age Trail Loew Lake SegmentIMG_5700

We had so much fun on this trail. The first part of the segment had a ribbon of pine needles as it’s trail. The yellow blazes on the trees indicated the path. The whole area smelled of pine and faintly, cedar. It was so hush. IMG_5694

The second half of the trail took us closer to the lake and marsh area. We walked along the Oconomowoc River. This section had more deciduous trees that had yet to regain their leaves. The bird calls were crisp and clear.IMG_5697


We walked about 1.5 miles out and back of the 5 available miles. This is definitely a segment that I want to revisit. Total mileage for the challenge: 7.75
