Day Eight Ice Age Trail


Day Eight Ice Age Trail

What A Workout!

Kettles in the rain and snow slowed my lofty mileage goal, along with cold hands and feet.

Next time I’ll remember my gloves!

I still don’t know how my Injinji toe socks magically disappeared in the night, but I did ‘MacGyver’ some sock cutouts to make the flip flops work.

The Kettle Moraine State Forest is a state forest in southeastern Wisconsin. The chief feature of the reserve is the Kettle Moraine, a highly glaciated area. The area contains very hilly terrain and glacial landforms, such as kettles, kames and eskers.

Kettles form when a block of stagnant ice (a serac) detaches from the glacier. Eventually, it becomes wholly or partially buried in sediment and slowly melts, leaving behind a pit.

On Day 9 you will see with more clear visibility, this distinct “Kettle” terrain from 18,000 to 15,000 years ago during the most recent glaciation.
Isn’t walking through history simply fascinating?

Buen Camino!
