The Long Hike from Lake Forest

Lake Forest, IL

April 7, 2006


This hike began at the Ragdale Foundation in Lake Forest, IL and ended at the artist's childhood home in the Chicago neighborhood of Albany Park, approximately 25 miles away. Using an internal-frame backpack, a set of hand-bound sketchbooks and two scrolls, weighing approximately 30 lbs., was carried through the North Shore suburbs. The route headed south on Green Bay Road past Fort Sheridan, Highwood, Highland Park, Kenilworth, Wilmette, Winnetka, Evanston, and Lincolnwood until it reached McCormick Blvd, where the route eventually entered Chicago. The hike began just past 6:00 a.m. and ended at approximately 2:30 in the afternoon.
