Monty the Mammoth Stars in Cornell Parade

Monty joins Cornell parade
Monty the Mammoth, the mascot for the Ice Age Trail, appeared in the Independence Day Parade in Cornell, Wisconsin. Monty got a ride from Cross Plains from hiker Shawn Ramsey, a Thousand Miler Wannabe. Thanks for being Monty's Trail Angel!

Local Ice Age Trail hikers from Cornell joined Monty in the parade and handed out granola bars to kids along the parade route. One even brought her walking stick that she decorated at our Hike and Meet Monty event last October. We gave out 400 granola bars with our chapter contact information.

It was great to demonstrate that the trail is here for local people, too, and not just for visitors from other parts of the state.
