a number of activities that peak during this transition period. The warming temperatures, longer days, increased sunshine, and April showers bring back our migratory birds, help the snow melt and the water levels rise, and of course bring us the May flowers. The rising water levels and snow melt leads to prime whitewater kayaking and rafting conditions, as well as, great views of Wisconsin’s Waterfalls. Most people don't even realize we have waterfalls in Wisconsin, and some aren't much more than a trickle in late summer and fall, but in spring they deserve more than a passing glance.
The previous are words I wrote last year to describe the season's change, and this year it is no different. We truly are in a seasonal transition. If you want to experience all four season's in Wisconsin, live here for a few days in March. In 2012, it was 78 degrees on St. Patrick's Day, but it could very well have been below zero. It could rain, snow, sleet, or hail in March like is predicted for the next couple days, or it may be sunny and calm. Get out and enjoy the transition. This time of year is a unique time where you can ice fish and kayak, downhill ski and mountain bike, or shovel snow and wear shorts all within a couple days of each other.
