take a walk when autumn comes to town

We enjoyed an unusually warm couple of November days last weekend in Chicago, but due to recent wind/rain, most of the fall leaves have already fallen. Luckily, I took advantage of an equally nice October afternoon a few weeks ago and took a few pictures of the leaves in their just-turned-yellow state. I live right across the street from this forest preserve along the Des Plaines river and had never spent time in it before (except to drive through it to get to work). Glad to know it’s a nice quiet place to take a stroll, just steps from my place.
