My husband went to graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We both grew up in the west, so mountains were everywhere. Living without them was an adjustment, and I’d have to say we did not like it a lot to begin with.
However, we soon discovered all the wonderful nature areas that were to be found (actually we didn’t discover all of them… just a few and that was enough for us!) We particularly liked the UW Arboretum. It had so many different areas where the plant life varied a lot that it was perfect for our birding hobby. We also just enjoyed seeing the various plants and trees.
On one outing the the Arboretum we took a path less traveled and happened upon this spot:
Enjoy nature and natural areas. Find those in your area that are free, go often. I try to remind myself to do that as well.
What is your favorite thing/part of nature?
