It was another beautiful Sunday yesterday…
so of course I had to go for another adventure on my bike!
Headed north again enjoying blue skies & beautiful scenery. It was a wonderful day to play outside. I came home with my first tanlines of the season… and I had a WONDERFUL moment hanging out by the lake at Openlands Lakeshore Preserve!

Northwestern University… with its iconic entrance arch.

Bahai Temple… one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the Chicagoland area.

Ravinia Festival… which sadly, has recently announced that they will NOT be opening at all this summer for their ongoing concert series… due to the whole Coronavirus Pandemic!

Openlands Lakeshore Preserve… an amazing natural space up on the far north side. Beautiful, calming and SO much different that the same Lake Michigan lakefront down in the City!

Fort Sheridan – always a beautiful stop up north… and conveniently right next to Openlands Lakeshore Preserve!

Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve – with an amazing scenic overlook. A great view of the lake, the sky… and the surprising lack of people!!!

And some beautiful star magnolias… from “somewhere” along the way! One of my all-time favorites!!!
