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:
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!
