A July Day at the Arboretum

Recently I took a hike at the University of Wisconsin Arboretum in Madison. Once again, took way too many photos!  Here are only a few from the day spent walking the grounds of this very important place.

The arboretum is designated by the National Park Service as a National Historic Landmark for its foundational work in ecological restoration.  It has over 300 native wildflowers, grasses and sedges. There are deciduous forest trees, conifer trees, wetlands, prairie restoration, and so much more to experience.  All total, there are more than seventeen miles of trails. 

Bark on trees always fascinates me - 

more of that to come in an upcoming post.


A day well worth the time.  Wonderful to be there!

Even the bugs were enjoying the place!
