Bike Ride to CBG

I went on a bike ride, a long one. I headed north and saw this. So I thought I would send a shout out to my Mormon friends:

On the ride there was lots of this:

And this:

And endless amounts of these:

Then...there was this...odd:

The fabulous North Branch of the Chicago River...which reminds me of Deliverance and then I freak out:

The Skokie Lagoons...hmmm....I'm not impressed. destination: The Chicago Botanical Gardens...mind you not located in Chicago. Pretty place:

There were free roaming swans...These animals should be caged. They are aggressive beasts.

I wasn't at the gardens long because I fear darkness would fall upon the land before I made it home and we all know that these turn into savage flesh eating demons at dusk...

Mere - I thoroughly enjoy your documented bike rides. Keep it up!

That looks like an awesome ride. Next to a night as a lady of the chamber, I think it's probably the second best reason for netherland soreness.

I would love to go on a bike ride like that....the midwest rocks!

People tend to give the mid-west a lot of crap...I am a fan.

Kristie is a fan because we all know...she is a mid-west girl at heart....which is AWESOME!!!
