One of my favorite get-aways is taking the train into Chicago and spending a couple of nights in the center of downtown. Love getting up before sunrise to walk down the streets without the busyness of traffic and crowds. Staying at one of the hotels along the riverwalk provides the perfect window views of the first light of day and also artificial lights shining across the skyline.
A visit to Chellberg Farm starts on a tree lined trail. If you just keep walking about one half mile you’ll catch a glimpse of the farmhouse. Get off the main trail a little bit and take a right to get a lovely view of the prairie, some cows, pigs and the garden. Early mornings are often filled with sunshine breaking through the fog. On this day, I happened to run into Mr. and Mrs Chellberg, all dressed in their gardening clothes as the watched over their lovely flowers, fruits, and veggies of all varieties.
