We're going to avoid the downtown crowds and take the 9:18 train from Barrington to Clybourn Station in Chicago and walk to Lincoln Park passing the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Conservatory and ending up at the lakeshore for some of the best views of the city that you can get. If you don't know Chicago and would like to get acquainted with it this is your opportunity. This might be one of the only downtown hikes that I have this year so take advantage of it. If you have plans for a meet up in the evening, we will be back in plenty of time. Of course, if you would like to stay downtown on your own, that is fine too. We should be back by 5:00.  I have done several hikes downtown and they always have been great fun so don't miss it. And please, don't be late for the train. Trains don't wait. See you there!    Bob

    Hey, great idea, Sat train ride into the city, just a little tough the morning after the 4th.
    Bob, you should try another one, with a slightly later train. The $7 train weekend pass is a good deal.

    You've got to give people more notice, especially on a holiday weekend. I've be wanting to go on this famous hike, but have other commitments for that day. Too bad.

    Bob, thanks for scheduling a Sat. walk! I'm having my eyes dilated early Sat. afternoon so I will be unable to host during the day.
