|Mt Hoy - Blackwell Forest Preserve, Warrenville, IL|
Last time I was at Blackwell Forest Preserve, it was just over a year ago and I was there for a trail run. This time, the whole family came along to try out a new, for us, winter sport: snow tubing!
It's not a huge monster of a mountain, but it felt pretty steep climbing up, carrying first an 18-month old and then our 4 1/2 year old. Yeah, we earn our turns in the Midwest.

We had some snow last week and this morning dawned fair and warm, enemies of snow sports (though it sure was beautiful). As time went on, the runs got shorter and shorter, as the snow thawed and became sticky. Still, it made the hikes back up shorter, surely a relief for short legs. After a long morning Tubing, you're exhausted and all done in; two things come to mind:
A quick nap:
or maybe some time by the fire:
Lots of family fun, not too far from home. We are really looking forward to the next snowfall and opportunity to return, hopefully to slide top to bottom.
