This past week we hiked the Chippewa Moraine segment of the Ice Age Trail north of Bloomer. Unfortunately we discovered another gift from our right wing republican governor. The interpretative center is now closed on Mondays. We usually stop and chat with the staff for a while before our hike but it was not to be on this day.
There was not a lot to see yet. It was still mostly brown. We did discover that the Round lobed Hepatica are now blooming at various places along the trail.
I took a few shots of fall leaves that were sitting at the bottom of several vernal ponds.
For the most part it was a beautiful day for a hike. We did notice a storm off to the north and found out later that it had rained most of the day north of where we were hiking.
More photographs from the Ice Age Trail can be found on my website.
