Segment 10 Day 1 Milwaukee->Oak Creek 14 miles
High of 70 degrees.
Monday, September 21
I took the Lake Express ferry from Muskegon to Milwaukee to begin the final segment of my Lake Trek.
I was joined for the first few miles by Phil Martin (in last photo), a friend (and writer/consultant/publisher) who lives in Milwaukee. He showed me Wisconsin's oldest copper beech tree, a massive specimen planted in the mid-1800s.
Milwaukee has lovely parks and paths along its waterfront, so the hiking was easy this first day of the last segment. The leaves were beginning to change and to fall this last full day of summer.
