The photo book ‘Around Wisco’ focuses on people, places on the Ice Age Trail

It took about two years for Cameron Gillie to completely hike, in segments, the 1,200-mile Ice Ace Trail, taking photos along the way.

The Madison photographer’s goal from the beginning was to use the images for a coffee table-style photo book. There were already books that focused on the natural beauty of the trail that cuts through Wisconsin, so his idea was to take photos not only of the landscapes he traversed, but also the towns, businesses, and people he encountered along the way .

He finished the hiking phase of his project in 2020, and it took a few more years for Gillie, 55, to sift through his photos, write essays and captions, and do all the other myriad things required to produce a book, especially a of the qualities that Gillie had in her mind.
