Girl Scout Snowshoe Event at Camp Nawakwa FEB. 25


On February 25th, with 15” of fresh new snow on the ground, the Chippewa Moraine Chapter led their annual snowshoe event at Camp Nawakwa.  Snowshoes that were donated by Scheel’s in Eau Claire last year were available for girls that did not have snowshoes.  There were about 30 participants for the event.

  We started out at the Heyde House at Camp Nawakwa and headed west along the ridge of the hill before heading downhill on the shared horse trail.  After passing the horse trail picnic spot, we joined up with the Ice Age Trail and hiked around Picnic Lake.  After crossing the bridge, we headed onto the lake ice.  We followed close to the lake shore around to the east side of the lake where we made snow angels.  Then on we went to the waterfront.  From there we climbed the hill up to the flats and then up to the Heyde House.  Perfect snow and a perfect day.  


Thank you to JoAnn Parks, Sherry Jasper and Pat Kosher for assisting on the hike.
