Summer (my favorite time of year)

See my state vicariously through the our four seasons, beginning with summer.  You will see that there is far more to us than just the cold and snow!

Our spring is mild, our summers are beautiful, our falls are colorful, and our winters are white.  Wisconsin is famous for our winters, but our other three seasons are well appreciated in this state.  Our summers are warm (averaging about 82 degrees) and at times humid, our fall is brisk and sometimes windy, lovely with the fall's ever changing pallet of colors with the leaves changing, and spring with the emerging breakthrough of green flowers starting the bloom.

Summer is my favorite by far, but even I admit that I live in a beautiful, clean state.

We have hundreds of miles of biking and hiking trails throughout the state with a large following.  Every weekend, it seems, there is a marathon biking event across the state.  Summer is a very active time of year for outdoor enthusiasts.  Because we are surrounded by water on three sides, boat sales here skyrocket and our boat landings are full.  We have the best walleye fishing in the country so during the season Cabela's hosts a national competition here.  Kayaking, canoeing, and waterskiing are a big part of our water fun in summer.

Something else we see a lot of here are classic car shows. Somewhere in the state every month from April to October there is a huge car show.  The private garages around the state are alive with activity as old, classic cars are rebuilt, refurbished, and are detailed throughout the winter and all come out for display when the snow melts.

  We have a huge collector base here in Wisconsin from Model A's to classic corvettes.

Fall is particularly popular for hiking.  With several state parks around Wisconsin, families gather for hikes through the woods enjoying the blanket of shushing of red and yellow leaves beneath their feet.  Mother Nature paints our world a rainbow of colors as the forest prepares for a deepness of winter.

In springtime our world jolts to life after a long winter.  With spring rains our snow melts in just one or two days, and suddenly our lawns turn from the brown of winter to the neon green of spring. Tulips poke from the earth as they seek the warmth of the sun, and birds fill the air with the song of a new day.
