In this, likely my last Wisconsin post for the year, I'm recalling and documenting the small but uniquely Madison experiences - those we might accidentally forget about when we focus on the more exciting experiences - we had this summer.
Saying hello to as many Bucky Badgers (there are currently 85 throughout Madison - we have quite a few more to visit before we're done) as possible:
|On campus by the Memorial Union Terrace.|
|At Brittingham Park.|
|At the Henry Vilas Zoo.|
|At Metcalf's grocery store.|
Posing in front of the Capitol:
|The railroad tracks by my elementary school.|
|The end of State Street.|
|The bridge over West Wash.|
Painting the Vilas Park Shoe Slide:
|Making her handprint "signature".|
|Back the following day to show off her "hand"-iwork.|
|The finished Saturn!|
Walking through the St. Mary's meditation maze:
|Finding her inner zen.|
Playing miniature golf (specifically the giraffe hole):
|Madison has the best miniature golf course ever: slides and |
rock walls, tunnels and rivers, zip lines and, of course, giraffes.
Enjoying popcorn, lemonade, and Wisconsin's own Spotted Cow beer on the UW Memorial Union Terrace:
|Listening to a great blue grass band.|
|It was 74 DEGREES outside on the evening I took this picture.|
74 DEGREES. 😍
Farewell, Wisconsin! See you next summer!
