We were looking for an outing so we drove up to the Chippewa Moraine Segment of the Ice Age Trail for a hike. We didn’t bring our snowshoes hoping the trail would have been packed down by snowshoers. It was in some places but others it was still soft enough to make things difficult. It was a bit like walking on the beach and we were pooped by the time we finished the 4.5 mile trail. Not a lot to photograph. We found this large popular tree that a beaver must have been working on. He should have tried for a smaller tree.

A few leaves had fallen in the snow.

A number of places we found that Pileated Woodpeckers had been busy on the trees. It doesn’t take them long to make short work of the tree.
