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.
