Cook County Forest Preserves
I think sometimes we don't realize all we have to do is step out our back door to be mystified by how beautiful Illinois, even Cook County can be. Our forest preserves stretch many acres and are full of wildlife, trails, quarries, lakes, and sloughs. Bass, walleye, bluegill, sunfish, crappie and even trout are in some lakes. I'll be riding my bike to some of these fishing spots this week, soaking up nature. It's getting nice and I am just so excited!
