The Mountains of Chicago

Last evening in Chicago the clouds were making unusual formations and changing the light in surreal ways. It looked as if there were purple mountains off in the distance. Sid thought we were back in California.


I couldn’t resist going outside to Winnemac Park to check it out, and of course I wanted to bring Sid with to try and get some images of him with such an incredible backdrop. The lighting made everything look dramatic.


There was even a sun-shower at one point. It’s always a weird experience to have rain drizzling down while the sun is shining and half the sky is still clear bright blue.


P.S. Sid and I would like to thank you for all the positive thoughts and good juju you sent us in regard to his little back tweak fiasco. He is totally back to his normal self so it must have just been a fluke thing which is a big relief for us both!

    Those Midwestern mountains are beautiful, we live in Iowa so we know what you mean about pretend mountains. We are glad Sid is feeling better and back in the park taking nice long walks. Happy St. Pats Day….stella rose

    Hi Sid and Brian,
    Those clouds really did look like California mountains – like the Santa Cruz range at sunset!!! So cool. Chicago looks like a fun place to visit, despite being FLAT.
    And I am glad the back is back. That is some scary stuff.
    Gonna be close to 80 degrees here today! Crazy weather.
    Happy St. Paddy’s Day (are you going to go see the green river?)
    Love Noodles
