Eau Claire has a number of pedestrian/bike underpasses to get people safely through busy intersections and they work great. I’ve been biking through the intersection of Vine and Claremont (pictured above) a couple times a month for the last three years, usually grumbling to myself about how it would be great if there was anContinue reading “Derp…”
I live in the Putnam Heights neighborhood of Eau Claire which, I guess, you could call post WWII semi-suburbia, the lots are a little too small and the blocks are a little too square for Putnam Heights to really be “the burbs” for me. Despite living here for about 3 years now I still haven’tContinue reading “Got Lost In My Own Neighborhood”
And here’s a nice moody B&W of the Water Street bridge in Eau Claire that I took summer of 2019 and just stumbled across and did some fix up work on.
The Pablo Center is a newly created center for the preforming arts in downtown Eau Claire and is a joint project between the UW Eau Claire and a bunch of orgs in the city. And it always looks lovely at sunset.
I took this at sunset a couple weeks back and am just now getting ‘round to looking at it. I think it’s good enough for sharing. The smokestack in the back of the photo is from the campus power plant which has either been decommissioned or converted to running on natural gas. However, I’ve heardContinue reading “University Of Wisconsin- Eau Claire”
We don’t have many days until the cold hits, so I was quite happy for it to be warm and sunny today and for me to have a spare half-hour or so where I could just sit and soak up some afternoon sun. It felt wonderful.
Along with the rivers, Half Moon lake is another watery attraction in Eau Claire and with it mostly surrounded by park land and bike paths there’s great public access to it as well. Half Moon Lake is an 135, or so, acre Ox Bow of the Chippewa river with a average depth of 5 orContinue reading “Half Moon Lake”
Scrolling though some recent photos I found this and thought it good enough to share.
Eau Claire is a place defined by the rivers that flow through it. Our city logo features river and the bridges that carry us over them. Our parks and recreation center around them. If you visit from out of town, it wont be very long until we take you to “the river” and treat youContinue reading “Defined by rivers”
While mounted on my bicycle doing my outandabouting today, I decided to truck up to the top level of one of the parking ramps (parking garage for my PNW fans) downtown and grab a pic of Mount Tom to kinda show what the lay of the land around here is like. From here the EauContinue reading “Mount Tom Again”
