Cedar Side Walking Trail, Rice Lake, WI



Oooh, Bridges...My Favorite!

I took these photos the last day of April, when we took a walk on what I just learned is the Cedar Side Walking Trail in Rice Lake, WI. I'm not sure how I missed that. All my photos are tagged with 'Red Cedar Trail,' which happens to be in Menomonie, not Rice Lake, and which one should not confuse with Cedar Side Walking Trail. Both are along the beautiful Red Cedar River, by the way. Anyway, it was a lovely spring day, before the mosquito season arrived.


Along the Trail


We often see women from UWBC (University of Wisconsin Barron County) walking two by two, visiting as they walk briskly along the trail. Mr. C. calls them 'Walkie Talkies.' Mr. C. and I are more like 'Walkie Thinkies.'

 It's even more beautiful, now that the trees have leafed out.

Good morning, Judy! Lovely scenic shots of the river and trail. I guess my hubby would be the walkie talkie and I am the walkie thinkie. Thanks for taking me along on your walk. Have a happy day!

Janey and Co. said...

Very pretty views. I love walking along the water. Walkie Thinkies, that's funny.

EG CameraGirl said...

I like the idea of you and Mr. C being "walkie thinkies." :)

Maggie said...

Whether you think or talk this trail looks like a wonderful place to walk, great bridge captures.

Beautiful walking pics!! Love the term, walkie talkies! I guess my hubby and I are walkie thinkies too and once in awhile walkie talkies. LOL
Have a nice day.cm

Deb said...

Gorgeous photos, Judy.

Sandra said...

I love either one, walkie talkie or walkie thinky and even walkie looky. I love the bridge shots, with all those LINES.. great photos and beautiful place to do any walking at all or even sitting.

Beautiful photos of a beautiful walk!

Such a peaceful place to walk, Judy. Love the comment about walkie talkies and walkie thinkies! I like to be both on our walks! ♥

Andy Wilson said...

"Walkie Talkies"....I am going to use that term. LOL.

Terri D said...

I love "walkie-talkies"!! Cute! You live in such a beautiful place...except in the winter! :)

Karen S. said...

Lovely views! What a place to be a Walkie Thinkie, it reminds me of being in Marine on St. Croix! I love walking that area too, but I'd rather be a Walkie Thinkie than a Walkie Talkie there! Love those terms.

TexWisGirl said...

walkie-talkies made me laugh. lovely area with clear air! (pre-bug, at least). love the reflections and thanks for the fencing!

Arlene said...

Walking is the time of day when my husband and I have time to talk so I guess we are walkie talkies too Judy!!

Sylvia said...

Very pretty area to walk. All your photo's are great!

Gypsy Quilter said...

I bet it's just as beautiful in the winter also. Always better without mosquitoes.

Linda Kay said...

Judy, love your pictures of the bridge and the beautiful blue water. I'm a "walkie-talkie".

Tired Teacher said...

A lovely walking trail - nothing like that here. I tend to be a Walkie Clickie, as I am always snapping photos. ;o)

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Love it -- I was transported! Mr D and I are more "Walkie Thinkies" too!

Debby Ray said...

What a lovely place for a walk. Goegeous photos. I would be a "walkie-thinkie-clickie" but I'd rather be alone. It ia great way for me get my quiet time in and snap a few pics along the way :)

Cheryl said...

That is certainly a pretty place to walk! Love Mr. C's description of the ladies...and your description of the two of you. :) I am not sure what my husband and I would be. It would probably depend on the day.

Gwen said...

what a beautiful trail area. Lucky you! Thanks for sharing!

Teresa Hennes said...

That is a beautiful place! I would be the walking thinker and my husband would be sure the walking talkie. Which he proves on each walk we go on. No matter if it is down the street or the most peaceful nature trail!

Cathy said...

Beautiful pictures!

Margaret Adamson said...

beautiful reflections and fences

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

Beautiful photos.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I love it- walkie talkies and walkie thinkies. My sister and I fit in that first category. Beautiful place, and sorry about that mosquito season..we are right in the middle of that and it's awful.

Terra said...

Ha ha, I am more of a walkie thinkie too. That is a beautiful walk.

Ida said...

Such a lovely area to take a walk and (think or talk).

L. D. said...

It is such a beautiful area in which you took some great photos.

ThreeOldKeys said...

I can almost taste the cool fresh air in your photos. The river views are so inviting.

Carla from The River said...

Hi,
I like that, Walkie Thinkies. :-))
We enjoy walking the trail too. I think they plan to expand to the North. What I like so much about it, is you do not need to worry about getting run over by a car. ;-)
Molly our Boston Terrier loves the trail too, new smells! LOL

What a lovely place to walk. I am more of a walkie thinkie too. If I tried to walk and talk at the same time I would probably trip over my own feet and hit the pavement. LOL xo Laura

"E", ...Beth... , from VA. said...

happy Thursday.

Rose said...

I'm a walkie-stumbler sometimes....LOL I got a real kick out of the walkie-talkies, and walkie-thinkies. Thanks for that laugh.

Red Cedar River--what a beautiful name for a river. And looks like a beautiful place.

Mildred said...

These pictures are so pretty. The water reflections are gorgeous. Have a good evening.

Michelle said...

You captured some great reflections in the water.

Nancy Kay said...

Very nice photos of this area! I like the "walkie-talkies" and the "walkie-thinkies." LOL.

Eva Marie O'Brien said...

It looks beautiful Judy :)
Happy Friday

Nancy's Notes said...

What a wonderful area, great pictures!! I'm still chuckling over the 'Walkie Talkies.' Too cute!! Walkie Thinkies, me too!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I love the perspective of a lot of your images this time 'round Judy!!!
And such a beautiful area....so pristine and, "quiet" I'm sure. A place to go and relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery.

Vee said...

Before the mosquitoes...point well taken. My own yard is pretty mosquito clear, but walks elsewhere...ai yo yi. I'm wearing lemon balm or, if all else fails, Icy Hot. Kills two birds with one stone. I like the description of the walkie talkies...made us laugh.

Vee said...

ai yo yi? I kind of like that, too!

Marie C said...

Beautiful place...and beautiful photos!

carolann said...

Felicia said...
