What made this trip memorable was the look of the snow that remained on the beach. Sculpted by wind and sun, it was scalloped, and scooped in nearly geometric shapes.
It is the juxtaposition of organic and technology, the natural and the manmade, the forest preserve and the electric towers, existing side by side, separate but together. I thought it summed up Lake County nicely.
Might be better in summer, though…or maybe the green would be too much?
