Ice Age Trail, Table Bluff

A five mile out-and-back through The Driftless Area, the unglaciated area of tens of thousands of years ago. Versus the millions of years of stream erosion.

Dandelions marked the way of the start, the wind loud enough to sound like a waterfall. I come across a fallen maple tree. One of the branches, I count about 40-50 years old. I would guess the tree about 150.

Everything is the new color of green, and there is coolness. And humidity, It rains a bit and I take my shirt off. There will be no one else here. The chert stones and the spring flowers, the thirteen-lined ground squirrel.
