It was one of those days. We had grand plans for a day trip to Madison. We were going to get up early, head out, and visit a large itinerary of sights. But we stayed up later than we planned, got up later than scheduled, still spent some time on the computer, and by the time we arrived near Madison and had some late lunch, we barely had time to see the Capitol and little more. It seems we have a number of those days.
Madison does, though, have a very impressive capitol building. It was far more impressive than the one we visited just a few days earlier in St Paul. The dome is taller than the one in the US Capitol. This Capitol houses the Assembly, Senate, Governor’s Offices, and the Supreme Court in its four wings. There was an exterior observation deck up at the base of the dome where you can see the two lakes on each side of the isthmus of the city where the Capitol is. After a stroll down the State Street Mall that runs between the Capitol and the University, it was time for the trip back to our campsite in the Wisconsin Dells area.
