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…

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…

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…

The Capitol (Madison)

I’ve been under the weather since last weekend. I had a cold that zapped every ounce of energy (and what little give-a-damn I had) right out of me. On top of that, I burned six of my fingers on a waffle iron Saturday morning as I was preparing to celebrate National Ice Cream For Breakfast…

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…

Halfway Prairie Wildlife Area

Also known as Halfway Prairie Dane County Wildlife Area, this was a brief stop on my drive from Tower Hill back to Madison. I had seen it on my way to Spring Green that morning and thought to myself, Hey! Didn’t I see a picture of that on Flickr earlier? Maybe I should check it…

Tower Hill State Park

My first “planned” adventure was on January 6th. I use quotation marks there because I had actually planned to go to Governor Dodge State Park, but a little research suggested that the trail I wanted to walk might be closed for hiking since we actually had some snow on the ground. Instead, I decided on nearby…
