We've had some serious rain the last couple of days
but this morning the sun came out.
I've been sick all summer (will spare you the details) and finally feeling better I headed for the trail around the lake.
I had a very nice walk about 2 miles.
As I post these shots I am noticing the absence of water foul.
A nice cool breezy morning!
You can see the ripples on the water.
It was so good to get out and moving again!
I don't normally post this many pictures but I've been away for awhile so I guess it's okay.
I love this spot for walking, there are several trails, none of which are too demanding.
The walk through the woods is very nice too.
The place is called Pistakee and is about 10 min from where I live.
I visit often.
All of these forest preserves were planned way back in 1909 when Daniel Burnham was planning the parks and improvements of Chicago.
It was called the Burnham plan.
Land acquisition for conservation of prairie, forest and wildlife started back then and has continued to this day.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
