40 Miles to Evanston

On Sunday morning we woke up to beautiful, fall weather, and made the spontaneous decision to rent bikes and ride to Evanston to explore. The 40 miles, round trip, were quite an adventure with many random stops, great conversation and beautiful image making. It is amazing how content you can feel when you just slow down and enjoy what is around you. Below are some of the highlights (all taken with my iPhone Hipstamatic App).
At North Beach, Chicago. 3 miles into the trip. Thanks Bike and Roll for great bikes.

We got lost for a bit in Rogers Park, but ran into the amazing Glenwood Sunday Market.

Lunch at Blind Faith in Evanston. One of our favorites!

Stopping by the Spice House, Evanston.

The cliche photo of laying in the park.

This is probably my favorite photo of the trip. Taken from Northwestern University looking south to the city of Chicago. The city looks teeny-tiny and confirms that we actually left urban living for a day.
