Nature hiking state park

Antioch IL, Hiking trails

An hour away from Chicago you will find Chain Of Lakes state park. The place has eight miles worth of hiking trails and three natural lakes – Grass, Marie and Nippersink – and the Fox River that connects the other seven lakes (Bluff, Fox, Pistakee, Channel, Petite, Catherine and Redhead) that make up the Chain. Being early spring 4-12-2014, there are barely any leafs on the trees. Many of the shots you will see in this gallery are handheld and HDR. A lot of the areas had controlled burns so not much green grass. The black and white worked out much better for a few of the shots.
