I drove up to northern Illinois today with some coworkers so that we can attend a meeting tomorrow. It was a long drive but we were rewarded with an afternoon field trip to a beautiful nature preserve….Fel Pro RRR Fen. This beautiful site has several natural communities including gravel hill prairie, savanna, sedge meadow, fen, and several spring-fed lakes. Of course I had my camera in tow, though I was seriously wishing I had my 7D back for this trip.
After the field trip, we all had dinner together at a local restaurant before heading back to our hotel. I always enjoy nights by myself in a hotel room because it’s a little respite from my hubby and kids. Peace and quiet and no responsibilities. Ah…If only there had been enough room in the van for my 3 huge pillows then this would have been just about perfect!
