So this day was absolutely stunning .. kind of overcast but warmish, like low 70s or so. I've been bit and piece hiking and running the Ice Age Trail since May .. This section East of Devils Lake and through to Devil's Lake is an 8 mile segment that took me through amazing land - prairie, marsh, forest and rocky cliffs! You'll get a little glimpse of it all in my youtube video below.
Today, I've also GOT to plug for the merino wool (otherwise called smart wool) long sleeve shirt that I've been running in. Smart wool is certainly the name I choose to give because I have literally worn it for 10 days straight - NO WASHING! .. I did this to experiment to see if the shirt really wouldn't stink after being on my running body for that many days. Well, the shirt is truly smart .. I may stink but my shirt doesn't!! That is truly SMART wool! Just because you can wear the same shirt for days on end doesn't mean you won't want bunches of colors that they come in from Clear Water Outdoor!
View my youtube video from the Ice Age Trail near Devils Lake State Park! Oh, and I have more Devils Lake images to view ... pssst, you can buy them for a song!
