Keeping It Close:
LaBagh Woods

It was another beautiful, pretty much, blue-sky day for our visit to LaBagh Woods, which has kind of become our hiking home away from home.

To gain quicker access to the bridge over the North Branch of the Chicago River and the paths on either side, we parked in the Irene Hernandez picnic grove parking lot. As you’ll see in the video below, there were some gorgeous clouds.

As you may recall, we’ve visited the LaBagh Woods in all seasons. Here are links to past blogs and videos.

The Healing Woods

For me, I enjoy seeing familiar sights in different light and different amounts of green (or lack thereof). Following are pictures of the graffiti-covered bridge, a close-up of some graffiti, a view of the river looking north from on top of the bridge, and one of the stranger things we’ve ever encountered while hiking – golf balls along the river’s edge. My guess is that someone (or many some-ones) were hitting golf balls from the picnic grove area and didn’t know their own strength!

Here are a couple of tree-water reflection pictures, and a couple of close-up shots of fungus and leaves.

And here’s the video from our visit.

For anyone who lives in Chicago, we hope you’ll make your way to the LaBagh Woods and please let us know about your visit.
