Wausan. WOW-SAN! Quite a fun name for a mountain, although the site is not quite as exciting. I find the entrance in the backyard of an apartment building that seems to be inhabited by the elderly. On the way, I find several mushrooms planted around a tree. An odd choice, I think. Finally climbing up, I see few other options but a fixed trail. It does not take very long, and I stop at a tennis court. Nearby, someone has done more guerrilla planting. There seem to be many activities and places to rest for the elderly, which is wonderful, but I wonder if they can do with more variety. I’ve only been hiking for the past month, and even I already have my bored moments.
