Ten random things: March 31

Ten rail trails in Wisconsin:

  1. Glacial Drumlin State Trail
  2. Sugar River State Trail
  3. Gandy Dancer State Trail
  4. Pine Line Trail
  5. Elroy-Sparta State Trail
  6. Ozaukee Interurban Trail
  7. Red Cedar State Trail
  8. Omaha Trail
  9. Bearskin State Park Trail
  10. Mountain Bay State Trail

One of the very nicest things about where I lived in northern Virginia was its proximity to the Washington and Old Dominion Trail, a rail trail stretching from Alexandria to Purcellville, almost 45 miles. Here in Madison, I'm very close to another one, the Capital City Trail. (Which is actually only a rail trail for part of its length, but close enough.) The first one of the trails listed above is one I learned about today, when I saw it mentioned in a document I was reviewing. It's a great name, though perhaps a bit redundant, since I believe all drumlns are glacial.
