A Walk Through a New Lake County Forest Preserve ...
Common Buckeye Butterfly
I was taken by the way the trunk of this fallen tree is so twisted. Can't imagine how that happens.
I live in Lake County where the taxes are exorbitant and it makes me cringe every time I have to pay them. But when I walk through one of their many beautifully maintained forest preserves, I have the sense that at least some of the money is being used for a good purpose.
