...on a fabulous hike in the Skokie Lagoons on a chilly but sunny and beautiful Sunday in April :-) It's so great to get out of the city and into nature, even though the city is just footsteps away. You'd never know it. We saw geese and ducks, a heron take flight, and a swimming muskrat! And an eagle!!!! I've never seen an eagle in the city! It was glorious!
