Day 365: The Woods

Winter FieldYesterday, Jim and I went on a hike in Ryerson Woods, a beautiful nature preserve on the Des Plaines River. We just discovered this place for the first time this weekend, and I’m pretty excited about it because there is a 4-mile trail in the preserve. It’s hard to find hiking trails that long near Chicago.

Water Jim in TreeI made Jim take a picture standing in this dead tree. He didn’t really want to do it for some reason. Scared of squirrels, perhaps?

PathHiking BootsThese are my new hiking boots. They’re not that cute, but they fit well. Thanks New Balance for making shoes in wide width! You’re the best!

Jim on PathThe DamMeJim took this picture of me sitting on a tree stump that was once chewed up by a beaver. I think it’s a good picture.

Here are the other nature-y photo posts I’ve done this year:
