One of my favorite places inside the city limits of Chicago is going to the bird sanctuary at Montrose Harbor and walking out onto the pier way off into the lake.  This is a place filled with so many childhood memories.

Call To Enchantment: Lake Glenview

Music by Peter Kater and R. Carlos Nakai - "Call To Enchantment"

Every time I stroll around Lake Glenview, I'm filled with memories of driving past the former Naval Air Base, which has since been renovated nature wonderland.  My hope is that this film clip will help those who watch be filled with calmness and a sense of inner peace.

Music by Jenna Anne - "I'm coming home"

This was my first trip to the Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve.  I had no idea that it was there, I only remember the area an army base, which closed down many years ago.

The forest preserve is in Fort Sheridan, IL just east of Highwood.
