I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
The other day I got reacquainted with an old friend I haven't seen for a long time - the Bug Line Trail. Now that I'm retired there are a lot more hours available for doing things that I have put off. So, not wanting to be more of a couch potato I decided to take a long walk.
Actually, my wife made the decision. And so we headed off for the intersection of Menomonee and Main. There is parking there for three or four cars.
We took off walking westward on the trail toward Lannon. During the past several years Waukesha County has maintained and improved this former railroad right of way. It is such a pleasure to be alone in nature and enjoy thesurrounding beauty.
We walked as far as the edge of the Lannon quarry and then turned back. Along the way we saw only five other people and six dogs.
The hour long trip amounted to approximately three miles, but even if you have time for only a half mile it is worth doing.
Perhaps I'll see you there one of these days.
