Snowshoeing in Neshota Park Denmark Wisconsin
Today I headed out to go snowshoeing in Neshota Park Denmark Wisconsin. The park is excellent in all seasons, as you will see from some of the pictures. The big draw in winter, it is only one of two parks in Brown County that one can snowshoe.

“The advice I’d give to somebody that’s silently struggling is, you don’t have to live that way. You don’t have to struggle in silence. You can be un-silent. You can live well with a mental health condition, as long as you open up to somebody about it, because it’s really important you share your experience with people so that you can get the help that you need.”— Demi Lovato

The 6 miles of trails at Neshota Park are trails that are shared with cross-country skiers and they ask that a snowshoer stays on the right-hand side of every trail. That is doable. No issues there. Also, you can not walk on the trails in winter, you must ski or snowshoe.
Snowshoeing is a slower way to travel and allows you to get out and explore nature in a whole new way. It also allows you to see areas that you can only explore when the earth is frozen solid.
We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.– Gary Zukhav
The Winter Scene
The wildlife doesn’t seem to understand what you are doing. Sometimes, you will see white-tailed deer, maybe a fox, a raccoon, or one of several types of birds tweeting you a morning hello.
You just never know what you are going to see on any given day. It could be spotting one of our winter bird visitors, a woodpecker, or even witnessing the gray squirrels mating practices during the months of January and February.
That is the beauty of nature, it is a new experience each month, day, hour, and minute.
Spring & Summer
The woodland areas come alive during the spring and summer months. There are all sorts of wildflowers and weeds, butterflies, moths and skippers, damselflies, and other critters running around.
My favorite thing about spring? The frog singing chorus. If you are out in the late afternoon through the nighttime hours, listen for the wood frog he sings a beautiful chorus. This is the mating chorus.
Chasing Down Tadpoles
Then there is chasing down tadpoles thing I got going on. Brings me back to my childhood.
Scientists are beginning to find evidence that being in nature has a profound impact on our brains and our behavior, helping us to reduce anxiety, brooding, and stress, and increase our attention capacity, creativity, and our ability to connect with other people.-Barkeley.edu
Now, I didn’t need a scientist to tell ME this, I know it to be true!
