Bluemound at Underwood Creek. Really gotta watch for this one.
Took a hike today. Found a lock system. Found an island. Found a dam. Found a blue heron. Found some trash.
Estabrook park is a beautiful place. The dam has been a source of controversy in recent years and is deteriorating at a quick rate. Through my search for history, I found that the dam was built as part of a Peace Corps initiative. Many people call for the removal of the dam, while others call for the improvement of it. I have no opinion (yet) but I do maintain that it is an interesting place.

There was a lot of trash here. Really messy. I also discovered that the things that are holding back the logs north of the locks are known as Icebreakers. Interesting place.
20th & Kinnickinnic River Parkway. First time I’ve seen these little ones. Apparently they’re very weather-proof.
Brew City Safari-Kinnickinnic River Parkway.
Today, a dozen people braved their way down the embanked Kinnickinnic River and across Union Pacific train tracks to see some parts of Milwaukee’s south side that not many have seen. A lot of fun was had and a lot of hiking was done.
At the end of the day, though I am tired, sweaty, and sore, I had a good time among friends seeing a part of the city that I never had.

Had fun on this.
very happy that I have been able to figure stuff out. I coded my blog and figured out how to add pages and stuff. v fun. v happy. v tired.
This church is huge. It towers over the neighborhood and rings aloud every day at noon and 6PM. It’s a deep and old ring, almost mature and wise in nature. As in, it’s been here for so long and seen so much throughout the years. Inside, the church is beautiful. Very high ceilings and very many religious paintings adorn the walls. I love seeing this wonderful piece of architecture poking through on my walks home.

We have a Facebook page now! It’s got some more specific ways to browse what is on here. But, if you don’t like Facebook, I’ll be sticking around on here as well! Most everything will be cross posted, so you’ll see it either way. Go ahead and like the page, you know you already do.
Yesterday I came to the realization that the song ‘Kielbasa’ by Tenacious D is actually about butt sex, not Kielbasa Sausage.
Something that I am very happy to have been a part of. This is was a live jam between my friend and I at the Hide House in Bay View, WI.
Off Minor is too good.
Currently working on a new project called 'Uninteresting Photos of the Allen-Bradley Clock Tower', a piece aimed around the corporate buyout of Allen-Bradley by Rockwell Automation, using the Allen-Bradley Clock Tower as a physical subject of what the blue-collar attitude of Milwaukee used to mean.
