Did our annual kids our own age hike today. Wally, Bob, and I are all 60 years young!! Bob picked Little Granite Mountain to summit. It was quite a little workout for me. We stretched it into almost 5 miles. We saw Sunray at the trailhead and chatted for a minute. Good to see ya!! Always enjoy the hikes with these two gentlemen!! Finished off the outing with lunch at JJ’s. Good times!!! Thanks gentlemen! Like HAZ, you rock!!

I finally got Linda to slow down enough to hike with me. Nice cloud cover for a change. We heard a nice pack of coyotes close by as soon as we got out of the cars. We told two gentlemen they could go in front of us. Come to think of it , we never saw them again! Nice hike and good to hit the trail with Linda again. Like HAZ, she rocks!

Wally and I headed up north to cooler weather and a little color. I like this hike and have been trying to get up here yearly. It was definitely cooler! We saw some color but still a little early. Wally may of misunderstood a “Fall” hike! 😳 The fewest people I’ve seen on this trail. We heard coyotes twice but no wildlife sightings! Hit Wienerschnitzel for chili dogs to finish off a nice outing! Thanks Wally! Like HAZ, you rock!!

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! 👍😁
