Governors Island!


 A hidden gem located in Madison!

Governors island is a small natural park,  part of the island is privately owned, one main trail runs the perimeter of the island. We went for an afternoon walk, the weather was 30 degrees and nice for afternoon hike. The trail was very slippery with ice at this time of the year, I suggest you wear yarktrax for safety. My husband slipped on the trail, so pay attention. We looped around for half a mile before we headed back to the parking lot. The trial is easy to follow from the gate, you wont get lost, it’s a busy lake right now with ice fisherman, and parking can be tough. We enjoyed the afternoon walk it was peaceful and the view was gorgeous as always. The trail is flat and dog friendly. The trail is really small I highly recommend this park for daughter who is three years old enjoyed this short hike first time to the lake. I cant wait to check it out in the summer.




This was one of the days we just needed to get in a car for a drive as a family and go on the adventure, my daughter fell asleep on our way and napped on my back for the entire hike. It was 30 degrees .




me and my daughter we are wearing the beanie from they are insulated and has a double layer, its one size fits all and comes in three colors.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.

Today we kicked off hike it baby 30 challenge, this is last challenge of the year. We had been planning to check out this amazing hidden germ in Baraboo since spring, little did we know it was not even actually hike, to this amazing spot. I was very excited when we got here since baby girl wanted to be carried, from the parking lot to this spot it was approximately 0.3 mi round trip 0.9 mi. the trail is rated moderate not sure why but I will rate it easy, especially since my toddler was able to run all the  way to the trailhead. The trail is good for all skill levels. I highly recommend this trail its toddler friendly, But I got to warn you, A portion is closed because of some stupid people who have been investing their time vandalizing this area. So if you end up going stay on the trail and respect nature, and guidelines, read more information on the link provided below.
