As the weather changes and gets cooler things slow down in Lake Geneva.
There is less automobile and foot traffic as winter approaches. These changes let the fall colors take center stage, including along the shore path and Snake Road. The path runs around the entire lake, with picturesque views everywhere you look. If you want to walk the whole 26-mile path it will take 8 to 10 hours or you can start at one of the many access points in the surrounding communities. No matter where you start and end you will find a perfect backdrop for your hike or that perfect picture you are hoping to capture. Snake Road, right off Highway 50 just a bit west of Lake Geneva, is another great location to view the fall colors or a great backdrop for fall pictures. The road winds its way around, surrounded by tall and magnificent trees on both sides. Make sure to get out and enjoy the colors before the wind sweeps them all away.
The American Legion Poppy Monument.
At Monday night’s plan commission meeting the American Legion requested to donate a Poppy sculpture to the City of Lake Geneva. They would like to place it north of the current memorial stone in Library Park. The sculpture will be four feet wide, seven feet tall, and have thirteen flowers. It will sit on a 4 by 4 concrete pad and it will be surrounded by red brick, a circle of green plants and include lighting. The sculpture was unanimously approved and will be up for final city council approval next week.
