Lived here in Crystal Lake for over 13 years. You all know I am all over the place just to get the pictures you want to see. Yet, it boggles my mind the places I still find that I didn't know existed within 10 minutes of my house. Last night I found another magic place. A forest preserve that I have passed quite often over the last 13 years that I guess I never looked at the sign on the road saying what it was. The actual park is tucked back in the woods, but,.....there is a sign. I checked it out and found it is a wonderful hiking park with several small ponds/lakes for fishing and kayaks/canoes/rowboats only. Really enjoyed the short time I was there and I would have stayed and checked it out more, but, I quickly realized that where there is a park with trees and water there are many mosquitos, big ones at that. I'll be back with the kids.
