Bottom: The view of Lake Monona from my hotel room. Totally frozen over.
It pains me to admit it, but Wisconsin has been far more aesthetically pleasing than Michigan (so far) on this trip. Snow cover just makes for excellent picture-making. Also I've had copious amounts of beer and cheese at both lunch and dinner today, which could be affecting my judgement.
Either way - I'm looking forward to making Madison my home for the next two days.
