Disclaimer - My track is correct, but the time stamps are erroneous. I had to go home and charge my iPhone part way into the hike. I then “glued” the two tracks together.
(So - The track is good, and the hike took about an hour, and not “over 4 hrs”).

I’m in the midwest for the holidays, visiting a zillion relatives, going to basketball and soccer games (grandson’s), band concerts (granddaughter ‘s and grandson’s), and watching my favorite ballerina (granddaughter) perform in the Nutcracker Musical. All fun times.

When I’m not traveling around doing those things, I’m trying to walk/hike as much as possible, to combat eating too many Xmas goodies etc.

Two years ago this month, I uploaded a golf course hike while in Wisconsin. On that hike, it was 65 degrees and sunny on 15 Dec. (Unusually high temps for Dec).
Today’s golf course hike had more normal December weather - 28 degrees and snowing most of the time. Just that light, fluffy snow.

The 9 hole golf course is closed for the winter, but hiking the course is OK. There’s only a light dusting of snow on the ground, and the nearby lake is trying its best to freeze over. Canadian Geese (the ones that do not migrate) are either in open portions of the cold lake or sitting on the very thin ice along the shores. Their tolerance for the cold water and ice fascinates me.

Anyway, I hiked from tee to green on all nine holes, then wandered around a bit, ending up using a forested area as a way back home. In the forest, I became transportation for some midwest cockleburs.

Next time I do this GC Wander, I’ll mix it up and hike it in reverse order, green #nine to tee #nine etc.
Gee ........... I hope I don’t get lost doing that!!! :)
