Madison has some rather lovely trees.
After the move from Madison back to my home state (Georgia), I realized how much I already missed Wisconsin. Its trees, lakes, green space, prairies, wetlands and wildlife have left a permanent mark on me. It’s strange how a place can create such an appreciation of life.
While up there, I took quite a few photos, but here are some of my favorites.

Enjoying an evening on Lake Mendota.
Walking toward town near Lake Monona — it’s completely frozen and covered in snow on the right.
How could I forget Picnic Point?
Georgia’s outdoor space is also breathtaking, but I have to drive a bit farther to get to it. After the move, we took a trip to the north Georgia mountains for some downtime.

For 2012: Here’s to a continued appreciation of the world, even amid transitions.
