Dale and I have gone to Lake Herrick a couple of times this spring–on the rare sunny day.

Dale took a few photos that he liked enough to share.

On one of our walks we noticed a couple of caterpillars crossing the road–and we helped them across on our fingers and dropped them off on some leaves.

The path we took where we met the caterpillars.

It was a very pretty day (minus the mosquitoes).

It’s a lovely forest preserve.

A knotty tree.
