A beautiful sunrise over Northerly Island.
A little known, and rarely visited, natural prairie park in downtown Chicago
hidden nicely next to the Adler Plantarium along the lakefront.

And thinking of my friend (and fellow summer camp counselor) Karen Mansfield
who loves Northerly Island and all of the the birds who live & migrate there.

And oh, but wait there’s more…
Karen has also just started the “adventure of a lifetime.”
She’s starting up in Maine… and hiking the entire Appalachian Trail by herself!
She’s estimating it to be a 5-month journey to make the entire trek from Maine to Georgia.
So we’re wishing her luck for great travels, great weather and great memories!
all said with more than a touch of envy & jealousy…

Luckily, no… Instead I was trying to get all of my summer campers picked up and safely in their parents’ cars before the big storm hit – right at the same time camp ends! We could see it coming – and we “almost” made it. The last couple stragglers got a bit wet. And then it was an incredible storm!!! Very exciting… loved it!!!
