This past weekend was gorgeous, weather wise, for February in Wisconsin.
Highs in the upper 30’s, close to 40F (4.4C). Blue skies. Glorious sun.
Saturday was a perfect day for a winter walk in the Flats of Appleton, along the Fox River.
People and their dogs and kids and one guy on his bicycle, relieving a bit of cabin fever.
I’ll let the photos and descriptions do the talking. Click on any photo to enter the gallery and have an awesome Monday!
Started here, at the corner of Olde Oneida and E. South River. On the Fox Trot Trail.
Down Olde Oneida, heading toward apartment buildings in a former paper mill.
Taking a right, to walk the trail along the river.
Looking back toward the bridge and dam.
You don’t see it here, but there were a number of people walking on the trails in the flats.
In the summer, the pelicans like to sit on the concrete stones in the middle of the river.
Eagles will stay year around on the Fox River.
Pelicans painted on a brick wall along the trail. It provides a lovely barrier between the trail and an industrial building.
After the riverside walk, I headed to the Newberry trail.
Yes, Dan Antion, functional railroad tracks and a very old bridge.
The sun was bright and glistening on the river.
No one is sitting here until the snow melts. We’ve had lots of the white stuff this year, so it may take a while.
Up the incline, heading toward the car.
Looking back, end of the trail, hoping spring comes soon.
