I went for my yearly run today, so now I'm done with that nonsense until 2015. I circled around Humboldt Park along with all the other families, runners, and dogs out in abundance.
Later, I took a walk in the other direction, towards Bucktown/Wicker Park. I didn't make it to Wicker Park proper, but I did make a loop in Park 567. What it lacks in a name, it makes up for in quaintness. This picture is pretty much it: an oval of grass surrounded by rocks and a paved path. Traffic on Milwaukee Ave speeds by while construction continues on The 606 and the Blue Line, but in the park things slow down. Shoes optional.
