Reflections of the Past
A calm winter afternoon along the historic Illinois and Michigan Canal about a mile east of Lemont, Illinois. The trails in this area of the National Heritage Corridor run between the canal and several water-filled quarries. It's quite remote here, and you can't help but feel as if you're miles away from civilization.
Several foot bridges (and even a log or two) allow you to cross the canal to walk along the towpath on either side.
