Found Another Animal Path #2


Couldn't resist walking in a circle to show you my tracks.

Illinois is expecting below zero weather and snow flurries.   So more of these kind of photos to come.   I think I'll go make a hot chocolate and spray some whipped cream in the cup.  See you next week.

Photos take at Ralph Frese River Trail, North Branch Chicago River.

My favorite beach, Lake Michigan, even in the winter season.   Look how the waves are frozen while coming to the shoreline.
