Spent about 3 1/2 hours hiking at beautiful Matthiessen State Park, in Utica IL. Winter here has been a bit strange: lots of unusually warm days, and not much snow. The park was especially beautiful, with a mix of winter, and a way too early for Spring vibe. The park is named for Frederick William Matthiessen. This was his estate and private park!
Just love visiting my elderly parents in New York and, going to my happy place…
Enjoyed sending time in Texas the past few days, but, especially enjoyed this Texas sunrise.
A bitter, cold sunset (we have been spoiled with warm weather lately) helps bring Thursday to an end. I am pretty sure there are more wind turbines than people in Ransom, Illinois.
A still, chilly, beautiful first sunrise in 2020.
Just did a quick don’t-think-about-it-to-much look at 2019 and chose some favorites. Many thanks to my WordPress family for stopping by and for all your encouraging comments. Have a safe, prosperous New Year! Happy 2020 everyone!
And finished an impromptu overnight stay in Chicago taking in the lights at Lincoln Park Zoo!
