On this trip, I travel north to Marengo Ridge, just west of Chicago, and stay at the Thomas Woods campground. I cook some chicken sausages and pizza burgers, go for a short bike ride, and a four-mile hike. The highlight of the trip was the hiking trails. Some were very wide grass paths while others, deemed ‘more difficult’, were single-track dirt. I wish bikes were allowed on the trails. Except for the mosquitos the trip was a lot of fun.
