Madison, WI

Madison, State Capital of Wisconsin, has one of the nicest State Capital buildings I have come across...

In the daylight...
(at the bottom of the image you can see some of the controversy surrounding the Governor)

In the early evening..

During the day, you can walk through the building from one end to the other,
with no security in sight
(an amazing thing in these days and times).

Surrounding the capital building are

The days I was there Wisconsin was experiencing a heat-wave: temperatures got into the 50's. The local citizenry treated it like a warm Spring day: t-shirts, short dresses and even the occasional pair of shorts.

I, on the other hand, was more sensibly dressed with a heavy coat, gloves and a warm hat.
