Last Sunday I went to a place nearby called
Another leg of the Lake County Forest Preserve
along the DesPlaines river.
I don't visit here often because I prefer trails that are more
"in the woods"
However, with two cortisone shots in my feet/ankle and a serious bit of pain the past few weeks I am opting for safer terrain.
Here the trails are paved for those who are in wheelchairs,
strollers, on bikes, etc.
Determined to keep my chubby butt moving!!
The sky was a vivid blue and the colors were just winding down.
The lakes here are spring fed and full of water foul.
It was very windy!
but the temp was in the 70's (won't be seeing that again soon)
I walked (hobbled) around for a bit and then just put my face up to the sun and enjoyed the warmth.
All week it has been windy as hell and this morning
there was a heavy frost.
No leaves left!
Gotta switch gears, make soup.
