The Last Moments of Fall

jprphotos_WIfall It is the last moments of fall.  Autumn came and is almost gone.  The crisp air is almost the strong winter wind that takes our breath away.  The calm and quiet of fall is giving way to the lonely and desolate days of winter.  The sky is colder looking, the ground is harder and the grass is dying.  Leaves left on the ground lie in wait to deaden the grass underneath.  It is not the end, instead the continuation of a life cycle that continues on whether we are hear to see it or not.

Tekakwitha Woods

jprphotos_Fox_River_Bend A January day and a walk down by the Fox River.  I experienced this path of quiet architecture just walking along taking a route most others do not take.  Thank goodness for my boots.  Tekakwitha Woods is a recreational area in the Fox Valley.  Tekakwitha Woods is located north of St. Charles off Route 25 Their address is 35WO76 Villa Marie Road.  It was a little cold and a little damp and very interesting.  I did eventually cross the Fox River to the picnic area which eventually leads to a rail station from the train museum.  The shoreline is healthy and many sections protected and kept up by Friends of the Fox River.  I can only recommend you send a donation or become a member.
