  I have been affiliated with Continuing Studies for almost 40 years as an Italian instructor of the non-credit, adult enrichment conversation courses and also, the college-level Italian 101 and 102 courses offered through Independent Learning. I am scheduled to retire in June 2020.

Photography is my avocation and my work has been published in one book, newsletters, magazine articles and on the web.

In 2018, I became a “Thousand Miler” by hiking the Ice Age National Scenic Trail—an almost 1,200-mile footpath that winds through Wisconsin, following glacial features left during the retreat of the last glacier some 10,000 years ago. I hiked during all four seasons traversing forests, farm fields, parks, prairies, country roads and city sidewalks. I walked Lake Michigan’s beach, along sparkling northern lakes and crossed wetlands on boardwalks. I forded streams, rock-hopped rivers and crossed them by ferry and through a covered bridge. Ten photos hardly tell my story, but hopefully provide a small glimpse of the beauty I discovered, one step at a time, in our wonderful state of Wisconsin.
WINTER
1. Ahnapee State Trail. The Ice Age Trail overlaps the Ahnapee State Trail in Door County.
2. Stoney Creek Swamp. The dark swamp water of Stoney Creek Swamp creeps within a foot of the Trail in Door County.
3. Woodland Dunes Boardwalk. The Trail passes through the 1,200-acre Woodland Dunes Nature Center and Preserve in Manitowoc County.
SPRING
4. Carpet of Spring Trillium. Plover River Segment, Marathon County.
5. Mayapples. Kewaunee River Segment, Kewaunee County.
SUMMER
6. Beaver Dam Crossing. A hiker walks atop a 100’ long beaver dam; in July, bug nets are de rigueur. Camp 27 Segment, Lincoln County.
7. Chequamegon Bench. The Trail travels more than 42 miles through the Chequamegon National Forest in Taylor County. Photo was taken on the Mondeaux Esker Segment.
FALL
8. Fall Reflections. The Trail follows Silver Creek through Ridge Run Park in West Bend, Washington County.
9. Trail Marker Tree. Native Americans would bend young trees to create trail markers forming an early routing system. This example was found on the Hemlock Creek Segment, Barron County.
10. Logwalk Crossing. This unique boardwalk was photographed in the Northern Blue Hills Segment, Rusk County.
