May On The Ice Age Trail
60 Miles Closer To Completion!
Whatever May lacked in distance, it made up for it in wisdom.
Strapping on a 27-pound backpack and hiking 60 miles in 3 days, whilst camping along the way, taught me a lot about my preferred style of adventure.
I cannot have both: long distance and heavy pack weight.
The only way to discover it for myself was to experiment, and I am so glad that I did.
As far as camping on the Ice Age Trail goes, the closeness to nature was highly enjoyable, including hearing owls and coyotes at night.
Ticks and nearly freezing wind chills were not my friends.
The highlight of my quest on the trail in May was climbing to the top of a hill and witnessing coyotes playing in a field without them realizing I was watching them.
Mother Nature is amazing!
So far the war against ticks is Amie 2 and Ticks 0.
June brings a new mix of backpacking, camping, trail angels, wildlife, climate and terrain.
Thank you for taking this journey with me.
