Epic 12-Hour Walk, Part I

I have this group, which we now call “The Early Risers” because we tend to start our walks as early as possible, even before sunrise, if need be. I started it with Mark Marshall a few weeks ago and for this walk on April 8, Tim K. and Michelle D. have joined us. Who knows who will join us next.

For this epic walk, a day-long walk, we met at North Ave. Beach for sunrise, then drove to the Loop for a train tracks shoot, then the Chicago Riverwalk, after which we drove to the Garfield Conservatory, then back to downtown in River North and ended up in the River Walk again.

I left the house at 5:21 AM and arrived back at the house at 5:21 PM.

Exhausting but exhilarating at the same time.

This is part I of the walk (North Ave. Beach).
