Off the Path: Blackhawk Springs Forest Preserve

3-29-2014_Blackhawk Springs FP (105)_PPThis is the first post of a new weekly subject. I’m calling it “Off the Path” for several reasons, the main one being that I want to show that there are beautiful places to see. All you have to do is open your eyes and explore a little bit. This image is a prime example. I have lived twenty minutes from this forest preserve for more than ten years, but I never took time to visit it until recently. It has a bike path as well as nearly 3 miles of hiking trails. If you were to walk the trails without going off the path you may never see this small island in the river. For this photo I wandered about 50 feet off the trail through some mud, (it is early spring) and brush to get to the river bank where I nearly sat down so that I could get low enough to take this shot from under a tree branch. Give it a try, (cameras are optional) who knows you may enjoy it.
