November 13th | Middle Fork River Forest Preserve (Champaign County)
Sophie and I had an afternoon free on another unseasonably warm November afternoon and decided to head out to MIddle Fork River Forest Preserve in northeast Champaign County - about 30 minutes outside Champaign-Urbana. To my recollection I'd never been out there, and almost immediately fell in love with the place. We were past peak foliage, but there was still plenty of beauty to be found in the woods that make up the preserve.
This will probably be a frequent exploration spot in 2017.
