Location: Ottawa Township: Kettle Moraine State Forest
Waukesha County

Horse riding trail loop through upland Mesic & Dry Mesic forest! 2:30Pm - 6:00 Pm, Sunny with a few scattered clouds, Gusty winds most of the day! Once again making photography difficult, when flushing a butterfly, winds sweep it away out of camera range. Sixty five sightings for twelve species & one active Anglewing Moth on the trail!
