Today I got slightly sunburned, which means one thing – it’s finally warm enough to go outside again! I can’t even explain how excited I am for summer. When I have nothing else to do I love to just get out and wander around, but with Wisconsin winter weather my free time is instead consumed by facebook. Sunburn may hurt a bit, but I’ll take it over pasty any day.
Today’s sunburn is a result of wandering somewhere new with my family and dog. What’s interesting is that this place is right in my neighborhood, yet I’ve never been there before. I’m not sure if this is just a well-kept secret or if I’m really out of the loop, but behind the man-made lake on the east side of Swan Boulevard there’s a set of trails that not only leads through some gorgeous woods, but that also contains some interesting stone stairs and what look like building ruins, as well.
The trails were a new experience in themselves, but back there I also caught a snake, which I’ve never done before!
If anyone knows anything about the history of these trails, please let me know. I’m really curious!
