The Tuesday hike report by Jake Gerlach: This Tuesday there was a threat of rain and there was a little rain or drizzle from time to time. For the last nine years Marvin has treated hikers to rhubarb cake after a June hike near his birthday, and this was the designated day. Most of the regular hikers went directly to the Nordic Ski Trails north of La Grange. I was at the usual starting spot at the U.S. Highway 12 parking lot, directing any non-regular hikers and anyone who forgot, to go to the ski trails. At 4 p.m., I left for the ski trails.
Warmer summer days are surely ahead, so why not enjoy them at Krueger Pool in Beloit? New this season, the pool offers an expanded selection of concession items and accepts credit and debit cards to pay for daily admission fees and concession items.
