A drive along Lake Michigan

Last weekend we made a quick trip to Milwaukee.  Although it is further south than the Twin Cities, the temperatures were still cool and there was a brisk wind blowing.  We spent a few hours at the Milwaukee Art Museum and then drove north along the shoreline of Lake Michigan.  It was a wonderful drive close by the lake, then through some neighborhoods of large historic mansions and many public parks.  The lake was a beautiful almost-turquoise color that contrasted nicely with the clouds.  As cool as it was, people were out enjoying the day with its promise of spring.

    How wonderful for you! I lived in Milwaukee for 15 years and remember with great fondness how Lake Michigan looked at various points in the year, always a spectacle to behold. Thanks so much for posting this. Lake Michigan is a national treasure from all points, but I believe, as a native Wisconsinite, that the view looking east is the best! Thank you for providing us with this glimpse of this fabulous resource of ours.

      We really enjoyed Milwaukee and certainly plan to return soon when we can spend more time exploring. I can understand why you have fond memories, and why you are appreciative of Lake Michigan. Seems like wherever we wander there is always more to explore! Thanks, Rex!
