The Tuesday hike report by Jake Gerlach: On a beautiful spring evening, 13 hikers showed up for our hike. This evening I chose to cross U.S. Highway 12 and walk the Ice Age Trail to Esterly Road and then come back on the horse trail. That turned out to be an excellent choice. The ground was firm and not muddy. We saw several wildflowers; the first was a cluster of bellwort that was just coming into bloom. We saw pinkish and white anemone. At one point a scarlet tanager kept flying just ahead of us down the trail.
