This is Suburbia?

It can be a challenge to find somewhere peaceful and pretty to walk in suburbia.  I'm not a fan of stepping out the door just to spend the next hour or so passing house after driveway after yard of a typical suburban neighborhood.  With cars whizzing by.

Luckily, we do have several areas conducive to feeling "one with nature" that I love to frequent.  Today I walked the Prairie Path, which is a paved walking/biking road along a now-defunct railway.  I've not traversed its entirety, but am told it passes through my town up north to Wisconsin and down south as far as Batavia.  And although they don't show up well in these shots, the emerging fall colors were lovely this afternoon (click on photos to enlarge):





























It's a great path for biking or walking, stopping to rest, having a picnic lunch, or reading and people-watching!
