I mentioned in the first post about Grant Woods, that I thought it might be my favorite forest preserve.
The biggest reason? That within its 1200 acres, it encompasses just about every non-mountain habitat you can think of, from the tamarack bog to savanna to evergreen forest, and others in between. It’s like having a bunch of national parks, all in one!
As you walk north through the underpass to the north section, you walk past open prairie scenes.
I felt like I had just stepped back to New England! You just don’t see wild fir trees here, and not that tall!
I can’t wait to go back again this summer!
