Winter sports in Milwaukee are almost done

Higher temps this weekend through next week will likely be an end to winter fun and we'll say hello to mud and slush.  If you want to get out your skis, skates, snowshoes one last time, you can always check out the Milwaukee parks page and sort activities by where they are available.

I know many of you were hoping the Door County Sled dogs might be making an appearance in Whitnall park again, but they are indeed finished for the season.  If you didn't get a chance to see them, go check out their page and enjoy the photos until next winter.

This would also be a good week for Lynden Sculpture gardens. It's especially lovely with fresh snow.  Weather permitting they do a weekend ice rink.  Remember this is a private facility and they do charge admission. They also have a variety of courses posted at their webpage if you want to be indoors.  And have you ever seen Cedarburg's covered bridge park with snow? It's one of the best sights ever! Then there's Schlitz Audubon Center with a roaring fireplace indoors. You can hike and enjoy hot chocolate afterwards for a small donation. All of these places have previous entries that you can read by searching within my blog. The  Urban Ecology Center  is still keeping a very busy schedule- everything from soapmaking to maple syrup.  Check out their schedule to see if there is something of interest.  Last but not least- how about Grant Park where you can hike the 7 Bridges trail?  There's also a fundraiser at Grant Park golf course on Sunday that includes a good helping of Irish food.

Enjoy the last of the snow! Spring will eventually come!

Good Bye!  Door County Sled dogs at Whitnall Park
