The corner view for this week is The Great Outdoors. We have long cold winters here in Madison, WI, so spring is a very welcome time, and most people love to get OUT.
For us, we prefer being outside as much as we can, and while we do live in the city of Madison and are close to a vibrant urban area, we prefer being in the woods, near the water, or on a farm.
Madison is on an isthmus - a very narrow one - flanked by two large lakes. We have many lakes and rivers throughout our area as well. Our city has many parks, with prairie, wetlands, and forest. A lot of the more rural area is agriculture, but lovely parks are tucked in all over.
Being on the edge of the city, we are close to interesting neighborhoods and of course the lakes. But we are also just minutes away from farmland and narrow rural roads. It is nice to have easy access to both.
We love to take nature walks often, work in our garden (s), visit farms, ride our bikes, play outside, go to the beach, and find new places to explore. This summer we plan to go camping and have a few rural trips planned.
