This is what the Ice Age Trail is all about. This is the Plover River Segment just north of Sportsman Drive in the Town of Plover near the eastern border of Marathon County.
This segment in Marathon County first opened in 2010. The great scenery is made accessible by many volunteers in the Mobil Skills program of the Ice Age Trail Alliance. I have been on this segment already in different seasons, but autumn produces these stunning colors as the trees ready themselves for winter. It is the change of the season and the crispness in the air. Nature is taking its course.
This is Wisconsin at its best. Our weather is not boring here. It changes with the seasons, and all nature responds to it. Though definitely not as popular as the Dells Segment, the Plover River Segment has its own experience with kames, kettles, eskers, and drumlins that make up the terminal moraine.
My hope is that you will enjoy these images and want to get out and explore the Ice Age Trail here in Wisconsin. Come see our changing seasons.
