Few Chicagoans get to experience the lake the way we do on the Southeast side. While every square inch of lakefront seems to be occupied up North, it's not true down here. After "beach" season, the park is all but vacant. You can ride your bike, jog or take a stroll without having to dodge between other pedestrians. It's the prefect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and at this time of the year, the holiday season too.
|"Here a goose, there a goose, every where a goose goose."|
|I was surprised they let me get this close.|
|Brown fallen leaves against grass that was|
still very green.
|State Line Power Plant closed, but still rather imposing.|
Looking across the misty water at the beach.
|Due to the low level of the lake, a part of the bottom I have |
never, ever seen exposed.
|How low can it go???|
|Like age rings on a tree, so telling are the worn|
lines along pier's pylons.
Enjoying the fall-winter-spring like air.
