Winter backpacking the Ice Age Trail

Spent the weekend backpacking part of the Ice Age Trail at Kettle Moraine State Forest in southern Wisconsin. Kettle Moraine is a fairly narrow strip of forested land broken up into two major sections: the northern unit and the southern unit. We visited the northern unit, starting at shelter site #1 near the village of Kewaskum and heading north on an out-and-back route.

Snow depth on the trail was roughly 5-6 inches. Night time temperature dropped to a balmy -11°F. Brr.
