Chicago Trip: Spring Valley

We visited the Spring Valley park near our hotel in Schaumburg. It has a beautiful nature preserve area and an 1880's style German farm.

Entrance to the trail that winds along a grassland area and then wetland area

At the end of the nature trail, we found the Heritage Farm. The staff were all busy with some school groups, so we did a self-guided tour.

This is Otto, the very friendly cow.
