Hoofprints on the Trail
On Sunday we were at the Poplar Creek Forest Preserve, walking along a unpaved but well-maintained trail in the Shoe Factory Road Woods -- bet there's no other forested area in the world with that name -- and we came across something you don't see too often in the suburbs.
Hoofprints. The hiking path doubled as a horse trail, though none were to be seen at that moment. Still, one had trod by in the not-too distant past, probably on its way back to the horse farm on Bode Road that's surrounded by forest preserve territory.
