|Hostess gifts from my garden plot|
On our most recent trip to see my sister in Wisconsin, we visited Kettle Moraine State Forest and hiked to the top of Lapham Peak. Despite the state’s relatively flat terrain, the views were incredible, and the huge stretches of butterfly gardens and dense forests along the trail immediately made the park one of my favorite places in the area.
There’s already talk of cross-country skiing the trail this winter. Though I’m certainly no fan of winter sports, we heard that they line the path with candles, so I may be up for it after all, especially if I can end the adventure with a festive lakeside beverage.
