Late last week I made the trip up the Ice Age Trail east of Rice Lake to hike the Hemlock Creek Loop. The weather was overcast and I was hoping to get a chance to photograph a few wildflowers. Much to my amazement I found over twenty different wildflowers in bloom. Large Flowered Trillium were the most common but there were lots of wild strawberries, a variety of anemone, violets and many more. If you have never hiked this segment of the ice age trail now is a great time to do it.
On the down side there were a few mosquitoes out.
