My mom is coming to visit me in Chicago this weekend. This is a very rare occurrence for her. We are going to take a little day trip to Starved Rock National Park while she's here. It's about a two hour drive Southwest of the city. I'm really in need of a little nature right now. I'm also really hoping that we get to see some Bald Eagles while we're there. There are also Raptors in the area. I would be thrilled to see either of these birds. I'm seriously just thrilled to get out of the city at this point. You have no idea. Well maybe some of you do.
