Rockin’ Robin

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.)…

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…

I’m on Instagram!

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…

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…

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…
