A Lapham Peak Experience

Thirty minutes west of Milwaukee is a state forest at the southern edge of Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine region. The area’s most prominent natural feature is a steep, oak-covered hill known as Lapham Peak.

Hiking and skiing trails loop around the hill and across an adjoining prairie. After last night’s snow they were filled today with cross-country skiers getting in what is likely to be their last outing of the season. The warming shelter had a wood-burning stove with actual wood burning (the most amazing smell possible on a cold day).

It’s not the most glamorous destination in Wisconsin but it makes for an enjoyable Saturday afternoon visit in late winter. imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage
