Boy was I right!
As I looked through my pictures of my trail adventures over the last year, I was brought to the warm summer days with my daughter, the first time I ventured out on my own, and the Tyke Hike sessions I've led. I think of the quick paces to beat the sunset, the early morning treks to beat the heat, and the excitement of every new discovery. I remember encountering some wild animals, other hikers, and the many opportunities to walk with friends and family. While the past is jam-packed with memories, the future has so many more ready to be cherished.
A picture tells a thousand words, so I have included one of my favorite images from each of the Waukesha/Milwaukee County Chapter segments below.

I am not sure exactly where my hiking adventures will take me, though I am working on a few things right now, including. . .
- coordinating a Summer Saunters program through my school district for summer 2015.
- getting dates and locations for next year's Tyke Hikes.
- organizing a school-wide hike along the Ice Age Trail.
- writing a non-fiction/fiction hybrid picture book promoting the trail.
I also have some more personal goals for the next year, besides successfully completing all of the aforementioned.
I'd like to. . .
- complete another county's worth of segments
- add to my very early edition of an Ice Age Trail poetry book
- complete a "Walk the Wauk" weekend
So much to hike, so little time. :) Happy Trails!
