November 9, 2013 Mountain Biking at Sweet Woods
I have a lot of things to do around the house today because I'm going to the Bears game tomorrow. So I decided to take the dogs for a hike locally. We ended up at Sweet Woods. It was a perfect fall day about 55 degrees and sunny. What could go wrong? The trails were covered with fallen leaves but they were dry. After hiking with the dogs, I decided to get my bike and return to get in one last ride before winter. Hey the chores will still be there to be done on a crappy day.
Oslo, scratching the ground after taking a dump.
The early morning sun made for long shadows.
Most of the leaves are now on the ground.
Playing with perspective.
The Cook County Forest Preserve has done a lot of work in the parks near me. In the past few years they rebuilt shelters, planted trees and improved the signs especially for the trails.
It felt great to go riding.
The trails were covered with leaves but I managed to stay on the trails...for most of the ride.
Most likely won't see this again this year.
