Hiking at Devil’s Lake

October 3, 2009 at 3:00 am 1 comment

The Husband and I have taken our last hiking trip of the year.  We were hoping to fit in a late fall trip but our stupid work schedules won’t allow.  We spent lovely week-end in Madison, Wisconsin.  We hiked at Devil’s Lake Park, which was very pretty but not particularly difficult.  We left the trail though for some impromptu scrambling and a good time was had by all.

We were disturbed to see many people swimming in the lake as it is well known to contain skin-boring flukes.

Super Fun Best Part

Every single hotel downtown was full so we stayed at a Motel 6, which wasn’t completely horrible.  This was in our non-smoking room.

    You’d love the down-under walk that stretches 250 km between Newcastle and Sydney – the Great North Walk is 21 this year so there are celebrations all round
