Segment 9 Day 4 Harrington State Park->Concordia University 21 miles

High of 69 degrees.

August 29

It was a wild day on the Lake Trek today. Stephanie and I had an easy walk from Harrington State Park to the city of Port Washington. From there, we walked inland past the large power plant, then back down the 100 foot bluff to the lake via the Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve.

The shoreline was rocky here, and the going tough at times due to downed trees and the eroding, partially clay bluff hemming us next to the water.

We hit a spot just north of Concordia College where the shoreline became impassible and we headed inland.
