Green Lake lies a little over an hour north of Milwaukee, WI. It is quite deep, has clear water, and supports a great deal of summertime boating and swimming activity. On the lake’s east end, a series of quirky little islands makes for some unusual shoreline. Inside of the islands lie some interconnected lagoons perhaps a hundred feet wide and only a foot or two deep.
Crossing one of these lagoons is a footbridge so rickety as to be picturesque in its own unique way. It leads to hardly anything at all, but even so, at quiet times the bridge, the still waters, and the shoreline vegetation make for some very interesting and colorful images.
