One way to beat the heat

Pheasant Branch Creek Trail
Want to bike or walk in the Madison area but the direct, baking sun and temps in the mid-nineties are just too much to take? This bike path runs along the Pheasant Branch Creek in Middleton as it meanders toward the Pheasant Branch Conservancy and then Lake Mendota. The path is cooler than the surroundings. It's shaded by the trees, and the same sunlight that is so hot elsewhere flilers beautifully through the trees, casting highlights on and near the creek.
