Tyke Hike #55 - Lapham Peak Service Hike
On a balmy evening in July, thirty hikers set out to do some service and hike the Ice Age Trail,
The group worked together to add gravel to the end of a puncheon being created by a group of volunteers known as the Monday Mudders. Led by volunteer extraordinaire, Pat Witkowski, this group works throughout the year to improve the trails for hikers of all ages and abilities. It was our pleasure to help them out in any way they can.
After adding gravel, we carried boards down to the other end of the puncheon to add to the wonderful progress. Then, we headed out for some hiking.
We trekked in the heated and buggy air, stopping to bop the blazes and check our prairie flowers.
Of course, we also found a place to explore off trail and play. We even found some friends along the way,
It was a fantastic night of service and discovery on the trail.
