We took some photos today, so here's a roundup of our morning/early afternoon.
The Chicago Park District hasn't mowed the park behind our apartment in quite a while. It's possible that it's due to budget cuts, but thanks to all the rain recently it's looking more like a prairie and less like a park.
Some tadpoles we found in a puddle on the side of the trail. This was right before we rode through a deep puddle.
All in all, it was a good day. The ride to Waterfall Glen isn't far at all. It took maybe 3o minutes from our apartment, and it's really, really pretty. The trail was really crowded--I knew the place was popular, but sheesh! Lots of walkers, bikers, and parents with babies in strollers. It was a BEAUTIFUL day for our first visit to Waterfall Glen, and I hope that the next time we're able to go is half as nice as it was today.
