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…

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…

Kilbourn Reservoir Park

Following our zoo trip, I knew I wanted to get out to see another park. So I got into research mode and found a few different places I was hoping to check out (it’s always good to have a backup plan). We ended up visiting three different parks on February 25th: Kilbourn Reservoir Park, Kadish…

Milwaukee County Zoo

Of all the places to walk in the Milwaukee area, my favorite is probably our zoo. If you’re not a fan of zoos, this isn’t going to be your favorite post. Even now, as an adult in my 30s, I love going to zoos. We have a ZooPass for the Milwaukee County Zoo (aka Milwaukee…

McCarty Park

After a thoroughly busy day last Saturday (after our 5+ mile walk, we drove to Mayville for Bierfest, and then drove back to Milwaukee for an Admirals game that I had won tickets to), our plan for Sunday was to spend the majority of the day watching cartoons. We were largely successful, but, of course,…

Jackson Park

Yesterday, I felt like crap. My stomach was bothering me, I was tired, and I was bored. Yes, I had plenty of cleaning and chores to be doing, but who wants to do that when it’s 45 degrees (F) in January? Around 4PM I was feeling better and decided to take full advantage of it…

Closed for Season

Last night my husband and I went to the Seven Bridges trail at Grant Park. This has long been a favorite of ours, but I hadn’t gone in the winter before. So we put on our boots, grabbed some spikes/chains (for extra grip on the plethora of stairs on the trail), and headed out, camera…

Milwaukee Lakefront

On Saturday, January 13th, I took part in my very first Meetup event! For those unfamiliar with it, Meetup is sort of like the online version of a bulletin board. Looking for a group of other walking enthusiasts? Hoping to connect with others in your industry or field? Just want to find some people to…
