Lake Mendota today.

I rode my own bike down the lake path and locked it up when I got to the Union Terrace (which you see in the pictures). I walked up State Street — stopping at a cafĂ© and a couple stores (where I bought nothing) — to the Capitol Square, where got a B-Cycle for the downhill back on State Street. I returned the B-Cycle at the station by the Kollege Klub, walked back through the Union Terrace, and liberated my own bike for the ride back along the lake path and home.

A very mellow Last Day of Spring.

It continues to amaze me how a city full of hate-filled racist liberal socialist sexist turds can build and maintain such a beautiful city like Madison.

There's a brand new set of restrooms in the Hoofers area on the north side of Memorial Union. The men's room has no urinals. Why? I suspect gender identity activism has something to do with it.

WHere's one of those pictures when it was frozen over?

4.75" of rain at our house since the beginning of this latest storm front.

To see frozen Lake Mendota, click on the Lake Mendota tag and scroll.

Some of the best times of my life can be found in that set, with the lake frozen. I can think of 3 offhand.

What happened to the Althouse coffee house photo posts: lattes and fries?

You haven't gone gluten-free, have you?

Quite different in Southern Door. Send some sunshine our way.

Oh my god...you have wetbacks in Wisconsin.
But maybe they are passing through to Canada.

State Street is flat. Don't blame gravity for your own laziness.

An environmental engineer thanks you for the photos.

Lake Mendota was the site of many studies on eutrophication, including some by Clair Sawyer, whom I met when I was an engineering student in Boston. As such, it and its problems were part of my professional education, and the photos allow me to wallow in nostalgia.

Actually, there IS a slight downhill from the Capital to the library mall. Bikers and runners know this. Renting a bike, when you have one with you, seems odd, though.
