There is a little county park near where I stay. It is very picturesque and tranquil. There is a dam that forms a lake with a cascading waterfall that flows into, and possible creates, a wide creek that runs through the park. Despite its' beauty, I rarely ever see anybody there. I guess people just take these kinds of parks for granted.
Outside the very modern bathroom facilities are these two drinking fountains. One for adults and one for children. I just couldn't bring myself to drink out of them. Even though my mind knew it was safe, I am far to accustomed to water issues here in Mexico to be able to do it.
The pond that is formed behind the dam is actually quite large. Of course, the further one gets from the fast flowing waterfall, the more stagnant the water becomes. At times it is hard to even see the water because of all the duckweed.
On one side there is a fishing dock. The nice thing about it, and the whole park, is that it is handicap accesible.
This is the view looking to the left off that dock above. It is the damn with a newly built bridge over it. The waterfall is directly below the brown part and it gives me the creeps to walk out onto it. Scary water!
I did walk across it though because I wanted to get this shot with the shadows. Also to show my car in the parking lot. See what I mean about it not being used much.
At the time of year I was there, the whole thing was ringed with these cattails.
Driving down the dirt road to get home, er, where I was staying, I have to pass this field of white cows. Finally one day they were close enough to the road to get a good shot. It must have been a hot day!
Just another summer day in Wisconsin.
