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…

Tosa Trails

On Sunday (2/18), we were just being lazy and enjoying having nothing to do when I decided I wanted to get out. The temperature was decent, it wasn’t raining or snowing, so why weren’t we outside? I asked my husband where we could go to see water. Didn’t matter what kind, I was just in…

Havenwoods State Forest

Illness, weather, busy schedules, and life (in general) have all gotten in the way of my walking lately, but at last, we were able to get out and about this weekend! Well, a bit. We got out Saturday morning, but then I ended up with a migraine that afternoon, and then we got some more…

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,…

Village of Greendale & Scout Lake Park

My husband has this crazy goal of walking 800 miles in 2018. While I fully support him and am so proud of him for taking on this challenge, I am not quite so ambitious. My goal is to get out, walk around, and see what the world has to offer. However, I am happy to…

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…
