Lake Katherine

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 July 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

A tranquil oasis awaits you at the Lake Katherine Nature Center and Botanical Gardens in Palos Heights, Illinois. Little did we know that the tranquility would be matched by the spotting of a swan family.

That stone would be nice to sit and think about all the big questions. Such would be world law, tomorrow's working day, and whether there is beer in the refrigerator.
