A Soggy Start to Saunters

The 2015 Summer Saunters season kicked off on the Eagle segment today. We splashed our way for just over 6 miles as we began our pursuit of just about walking all of Waukesha County's diverse and unique segments.

Though we encountered a multitude of ticks, endless puddles, and occasional bouts of drizzle, the kids hunkered down and made it.

We enjoyed walking on many different paths, whether they be covered in mud, sand, pine needles, or prairie grass.

Our learning focus today dealt with the basics of hiking, beginning practice with digital photography, and an introduction to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.

All in all, I look forward to discussing different habitats as we discover the Hartland Segment tomorrow.
