Kettle Moraine State Forest

Last weekend, my two sisters came up to visit.

They claimed to have never been tent camping before, so Allison and I decided to check out Kettle Moraine before spending the next day at Noah’s Ark waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells.

We only hiked 2 miles or so on Saturday (it was humid and the temperature was pushing 90 degrees…the girls could only push this old man so far).

The trail was short, but it gave us quite a bit of variety. We followed the Ice Age trail through a prairie (see above), then turned off into a wooded section to see “Brady’s Rocks” (see below).

Allison and the girls went swimming in a lake that afternoon, then we secured a campsite and set up the tent:

  1. Thanks for posting the info on the trip the girls took with you.

  2. The comments above is actually from Steve.

  3. That is awesome… I think it is good to take younger folks and expose them to the great outdoors. Hopefully, they had a great time and do some more tent camping!

    I am glad your continuing the blog because I can sit in Indiana and be jealous of your adventures. Haha… =) Although, I do love my caving and can’t get enough of it. Please keep on writing, I enjoy the posts even though I don’t read it all the time.


    • Thanks Aaron! We’re definitely already missing the caving…


  4. […] I ran my first trail marathon last weekend, and it was pretty brutal. The race took place in the southern unit of Kettle Moraine State Forest – on some of the same trails we hiked on with my sisters last summer. […]
