MENDOTA – While many people yearn for the sunshine and warmth of spring and summer, the winter season offers up a beautiful array of scenery that elicits the wonderful spectacle of the change of seasons.
The gorgeous sights of winter are on display all over the Mendota area, including at Lake Mendota where the geese are allowed to saunter about on the ice while still being able to seek refuge on the small bit of still unfrozen water. The beauty of the snow and ice clinging to the branches of trees offered up a picture postcard winter wonderland for several days. Icicles dangle like stalactites off buildings and houses all over town. And the snowfall has been a perfect ingredient to put artistic talents to work with all kinds of sculptures.
