Time of Walk: 3:30 PM
Temperature: 44° F (felt like 30°)
Weather: Cloudy and Windy
It’s been raining most of the day, so I should have known, I suppose.
I really wanted to walk outside today, so when the rain let up, my son and I donned our boots and headed out (my husband had other plans on this Sunday afternoon). We went to the Bartel Grassland, a prairie restoration project of the Forest Preserve of Cook County. I expected it might be a little wet, but it was a muddy mess.
It was actually rather fun. I haven’t sloshed through the mud like that since I was a kid. When we were done our boots needed some work, but it was great to be outside walking today.
Good day, good walk.
