Our first experience paddling Skokie Lagoons. We have much to learn about the area.
Wingra Creek is a pleasant urban paddle in Madison. We usually try it once a year. If the water is too high, it can be difficult to get through the first railroad bridge; the water is too strong and fast and there is always deadfall to contend with.
We were delighted to find that the obstacles have been removed. We got to paddle farther than we ever have! We suppose we have Friends of Starkweather Creek to thank for that.
We paddled from Tenny Park to Lake Monona on a weekday just because we could. The leaves fell shortly after that so it was a really good idea!+*0+*

Setting: Friday evening, temp about 80, sunny. We planned a short urban paddle on a creek we hadn’t been on for several years, followed by music of Hanggai in the park across the street from the launch
