Photo essay: Autumn forays in the parks of Southeast Wisconsin
By Eddee Daniel
There was a teaser of snow yesterday, but no accumulation. Cold enough to penetrate to my bones, especially the bones of my feet. I guess I wasn’t walking fast enough to keep the blood flowing! With winter descending upon us, I thought I’d take a visual look back at autumn, much of which was unseasonably warm by contrast.
When it did turn colder and the leaves were gone—and the pandemic surged alarmingly in Wisconsin—the phenomenon I observed during the shutdown last spring returned: Clearly more people continue to be out in the parks than is normal for these conditions. Here, in chronological order, are a few of the places I’ve visited in the past two months, some of which I’d never been to before!
The links in the captions will take you to our park page for that park so that you can learn more about it, see additional photos, and further enjoy our wealth of nature!
But wait … there’s more! To see additional photos from all 34 parks and preserves in this autumn foray, go to my Flickr album.
The featured photo at the top is from Mound Zion Park in Brookfield.
