Spring Blooms - Watershed #20

This last week of May was a great week to take a couple of hikes along the Ice Age Trails near Gardens at Waters East.  So many spring flowers to see and enjoy.  Here are selections of the many blooms now found in Wisconsin along the Ice Age Trails at Potawatomi State Park in Door County, to the Ice Age Trails in Kewaunee and in Algoma.  This is all a part of the important Watershed that cradles and nurtures the Gardens at Waters East. The weather was great.  Indeed it was a nice time to be out walking.

  1. Lovely blooms and views! I'm hoping to hike that part of the Ice Age Trail later this summer. We will be spending some time in Door County, and hope to do that hike on the return trip. We do have some incredible resources here in our state!
