Here we are in Des Plaines, Illinois, on the way to a meeting and what do we see along the roadway, but a caboose. I immediately thought of another blogger who just had a caboose ride and posted great train images on his blog. So, the image above and the following image were taken with Grenville of Frog and PenguINN in mind. Grenville and Beatrice have had some wonderful images of their travels in Maine on their blog.
Finally, we got to our meeting, got through our meeting, and were free to go in search of some pictures on this beautiful Fall day.
On the way from our hotel in Schaumburg to Des Plaines, we had passed the entrance to Busse Forest and Ned Brown Meadow so we headed back in that direction.
It was late afternoon by the time we got there, but we took advantage of the short amount of time that we had. My Honey had brought his Canon 7D, but I left my big Canon (50D) at home so that I could try out my new Canon PowerShot SX210IS with the 14x zoom. What I love about this new little baby camera is that it is powerful, yet small enough to fit into my pocket.
