This little bird has flown in to help me share some Wisco Walker news! I am now Facebook official! Yes, in addition to Instagram, I’m now on Facebook. Stop by and like my page! Same blog, different domain. Walking in Wisco is now living at wiscowalker.com! (Obviously, the old address works, too. You’ll just be redirected.)…

Engel Conservation Area

With a weekend to myself mid-March, I decided it was a good day to find a park and do some walking. I had just gotten a hip-holster for one of my cameras and was itching to try it out, so I hopped in the car and away I went. I didn’t really have a plan,…

Revisited: Schluter Park

Goodness, how the time has flown! The last few months have been a bit hectic for me. In May, I had a medical issue that was causing some pretty intense pain. After two different trips to Urgent Care (a week apart) and a trip to my primary doctor, I wound up at the ER and…

A Walk Is A Walk Is A Walk

Sometimes, I go out and walk with no real purpose. Not every excursion is about reviewing a trail or park. And not every post is going to be a history lesson, laced with facts and figures most people will ultimately ignore anyway. I mean, I love that stuff. (Really! I’m one of those sick people…

Samuel Myers Park

Our third park of the day on March 11th was Samuel Myers Park in Racine. Also known as Sam Myers Park or just Myers Park (or the super formal Samuel P Myers Park), this spot along Lake Michigan was an unexpected stop for us. We had just been driving around, heading lazily toward home from…

7th Pl. Overlook Park

After a nice visit to Sanders Park, we decided to go on a bit of an adventure. Surely, there must be more parks around here, we thought. A brief Google search suggested that yes, there were more parks in the area. Huzzah! We chose our next park at random and ended up in Somers at…

Sanders Park

After a brief break from the wilds of Wisconsin to visit friends (more like ‘chosen family’) in North Carolina, we went on another park-hopping adventure on Sunday, March 11th. The weather was good (in other words, not bitterly cold or too terribly windy) and we had no plans, so off we went! We started our…

A Hop, Skip, & a Swing Away

A short walk from Kadish Park is Swing Park, one of Milwaukee’s more offbeat parks. However, it’s not a particularly scenic park, so I don’t have a lot of photos of the park itself. I do have a few from the walk, though, so here we go! To get from Kadish Park to Swing Park,…

Alice Bertschy Kadish Park

I started this whole blog by explaining that I live with depression and anxiety and that walking has been a great way to alleviate some of my symptoms. While this is true, it’s not some magical panacea. I still experience the downs of depression and sometimes I’m wound so tight that it’s a wonder I…
