If anything, it looks a bit worse on the Madison side after a rainy Labor Day weekend.

Galoshes -- or bare feet -- required.

The sidewalks are in better condition here but not the street

Path is probably bikeable but galoshes are required for walking.

The City of Madison side of the dead end of Middleton Street. 

Around 25 years ago, Madison wanted to connect its newly platted Middleton Street with Middleton's.  Middleton's Middleton Street residents successfully lobbied against the proposal.

The shadows obscure where Stricker's Pond rose to its highest point.  (Enlarging the photo will help you to pinpoint the area, just below the center line of the photo.)
