I want to send a 500-foot-tall, Godzilla-like thank you to all of my Nature in Chicagoland readers for visiting my blog in 2018. In about 30 blog posts and more than 46,000 words (I didn’t count them, so I’ll have to trust my data analytics software), I’ve covered everything from troll hunting, snow shoeing, and axe throwing; to various spots in the Illinois Nature Preserves System (which protects the most pristine nature areas in our state); to kid-friendly museums; to an amazing city park that’s located in a quarry. It’s been a lot of fun, and a great way to spend more time outdoors with my son and wife. I wish writing Nature in Chicagoland was my full-time job—maybe it will be some day.
I look forward to telling you more about the great places to see in Chicagoland. But before I move on to 2019, here were the reader favorites in 2018 (you can click on the links to read the articles).
Thanks for reading and supporting Nature in Chicagoland. Happy New Year, and please send me your ideas for places that you’d like covered in 2019. And tell your friends about Nature in Chicagoland. Have a great year outdoors!
