MMM – Picnic Point

Mostly Madison Mondays – a howdoyoudo from my hometown of Madison, Wisconsin

“Picnic Point, a nearly mile-long peninsula along Lake Mendota’s south shore, is among Madison’s most distinctive features and is probably the most popular destination in the Preserve.”  – Lakeshore Nature Preserve

This is Picnic Point in summer, from the same website:

And my point of view during a family walk this weekend:

Great view but not great light. Freely acknowledging use of filters on these first pics.

An angel among us.

Picnic Point is an ideal Madison walk; short enough for the whole family but long enough to get your heart pumping, and beautiful views all around.  Despite that however, we were there alone and briefly – we didn’t even make it to the point itself due to an 8° temperature, a bathroom need and excitement around a potential nap.  We’ll be back though, we always return to Picnic Point.  Hope to see you there!
