Wally Supes Farak joined me on the dark side. A south mountain hike. I thought maybe we could see a speckled but nooo! I suggested Bursera/ Pyramid loop. A little foolish as I don’t get out much. We had to bail on Lost ranch mine and that was probably to late. On a lighter note. It was nice to get out on trail and always enjoy hiking with Wally!! Thanks for the hike, my friend! Like HAZ, you rock!!

I joined Wally for a hike from Needle Vista. We didn’t go to Hackberry Spring but we did see the needle, an Arch, and one of Wally’s many mines. We saw quite a few bunnies, quail, some peculiar acting frogs and one hiker with her dog. The first half of the hike was dry. The second half was not. It was nice to get out in the Supes!! Thanks for the hike Wally!! Like HAZ, you rock!!

I got Lily and Isaac on trail around 5am. A little muggy out and the breeze didn’t come until we were done. We finished with no injuries so it was a win! Good time!

I was going to be in Wisconsin for few days visiting and set aside one day to do a hike. I found the Ice Age Trail interesting and picked one 10 mile section to do. I altered the last little part to avoid the road walk back to car. Devil’s Lake is a State Park and requires a fee but because the National Trail goes through ,my National Park pass could be used. It was over a two hour drive to get here albeit pretty driving past the GREEN farms and such. It started raining a little before I got there and rained for the duration of the hike. The trail was in great shape with a tree canopy on the majority of the hike. There was some paved portions by the lake and you have to pay attention to stay on trail in a couple places by the campground. Not sure of park hours and with the weather only saw 3 people on trail. The campground did have some wet campers!! Although I got soaked to the bone, I enjoyed my hike thoroughly! Hiking with the tree canopy was a treat.,It also had a couple nice climbs through the rocks on the east and west bluffs of the lake that were cool. Glad I picked this one for my first hike in Wisconsin!! Very green out here and I think the rain may have kept the mosquitoes at bay! 👍😁

Wally met me on my side of town and agreed to hike South Mountain!! 😳 We did the Mormon- Geronimo loop with a side of Hidden Valley! The tunnel, the sound of the bee hive and Fat mans pass were all enjoyed. A few millipedes were out and even a Johnlp sighting on Geronimo! Good to chat with you , my friend. Always enjoy hiking with Wally and enjoy running into other Hazers!!! Nice outing! Thanks for the hike Wally! Like HAZ, you rock!!

I joined Wally for an early loop around Pass Mountain. Always enjoy the early start. I usually go clockwise when I start from the horse lot but I think Wally’s choice of counter clockwise today from his trailhead was a good call. We had most of the up done before we even saw the sun! Wally got pretty close to our first rattler of the season but it was in a fairly good mood! Probably good we saw it first as the guy coming the other way soon after had earbuds in.Nice hike and home by 8am. Good to get a hike in with you my friend! Like HAZ, you rock!

JJ and Linda let me join them for a hike up Brown’s Peak. It’s been awhile for me. My A Mountain hikes didn’t exactly prep me for this. Wore me out. JJ and Linda made it a great outing despite my whining! Great weather, Great views, and Great company made for a nice outing! Thanks you two! Like Haz, you rock!
