Segment 8 Day 4 Menominee->Peshtigo 13 miles
High of 68 degrees. July 17
This day found me crossing the Menominee River into the fourth state that touches Lake Michigan (and Green Bay): Wisconsin. Since I began my trek in Chicago and passed through Indiana, once I entered Wisconsin, I would have been in all four Lake Michigan states. Crossing the river was a moment.
Then, as I headed toward Peshtigo, the skies opened up and rained on my celebration. Since I've only had a few hours of rain during the Lake Trek (and Wisconsin is in a drought), I didn't mind the downpour.
