Hank Aaron State Trail Downtown Milwaukee

Pier Light and lighthouse in Milwaukee WI harbor

The Hank Aaron State Trail is a popular and fantastic public walkway that follows the downtown Milwaukee lakefront, near the Henry W Maier Festival Park west past Miller Park. In fact, you can see many important Milwaukee landmarks along it’s 12-mile route. I “discovered” the trail section along the Milwaukee lakefront on New Years Day, 2016.  I actually felt quite foolish when seeing how simple the access was and how magnificent the views right along the lakefront.  Having lived…

December Milwaukee Lakefront Walk

An unusually warm December in Milwaukee continued with highs around 50 degrees mid-month.  I couldn’t think of a better reason to take an early evening walk along the public path behind the Harbor House restaurant on the lakefront.  Only one couple was out at that time, otherwise the area was empty.  Too bad, it was a great night.

Milwaukee Photo Walk

This past Saturday evening (Oct 3rd 2015) I had the pleasure of meeting up with about 50 fellow photographers from the SE Wisconsin area.  It was a grey, overcast evening with a few rain drops falling from the sky.  Not ideal conditions but at the same time, presenting some opportunities, more on that in a moment.  We began the walk at the Milwaukee Public Market and headed north, hugging the Milwaukee River towards the Rock Bottom restaurant.  After the…
