Getting to know my own area
« on: April 23, 2013, 07:11:22 PM »
A new "get to know my own area" project. I'm riding out to each of my county's 27 forest preserve sites.

First of twenty seven: Harrison Benwell 74 acres 7055 McCullom Lake Road, Wonder Lake, IL

Two of twenty seven: Glacial Park 3,382 acres Route 31 & Harts Road, Ringwood, IL

Three of twenty seven: Stickney Run 629 acres 3216 West State Park Road, McHenry, IL

Four of twenty seven: Boger Bog 37 acres
2100 Cherry Valley Rd.,
Bull Valley, IL

Shame I couldn't get to all of them this weekend, so I'll get the rest as I can. :)

While you are out there just putting about, see if you can find an abandoned factory with graffiti on it. Take a picture of it with your Enfield sitting in front of it for the Phototag contest in the Campfire Section. It's just about to go onto page two!

Hey Lugnutty.  Im just a bit south of you in Lake Zurich.  You should check out McHenry Damn, fox river preserve and Moraine State park (thats one of my favourites).

Give a shout out of you'd like to meet up.

Sure, I'd like to meet up! :)

I work right up the street from McHenry Dam. It was raining and I had to bring some stuff home from work today, so I rode the BMW.  :-[

But it was gorgeous yesterday, and I got a bunch more. I'm up to 11 of the 27 forest preserves now.
