|Daisies, I think.|
We caught the trail, newly opened as of June 6, at Route 83 just south of Archer Ave., at the Sag Quarry trailhead. It's a brand-new asphalt surface, smooth as the proverbial newborn powdered tuchis. Even the few road crossings are smooth, for now. There are some mild hills and enough squiggles in the pavement to keep things interesting.
|The shade was most welcome.|
A highlight of the ride: a bald eagle soaring on the thermals over the moraine. When I see one of these magnificent birds, I always feel like I should salute.
|Not daisies, but these yellow flowers|
grew alongside the trail by the billions.
|A park in Palos had these exercise stations,|
and of course Steven had to try them out.
|Boss! Des Plaines! Des Plaines!|
OK, you had to be there.
