Google Earth

I started sharing hiking maps in the kmz format.
Google Earth is required to open this file.
I hope you will enjoy the maps.

Quincy, IL

We visited Quincy on Saturday.
After having lunch at Ruby Tuesdays, we hiked around Sunset Park near the downtown.
We also went to Wakonda State Park in La Grange but did not like the environment.
The last place we stopped was Menards, and it was an easy drive from Macomb to Quincy on IL Highway 336.

Veterans Park

Veterans Park is the most recent park developed by Macomb Park District.
The park is not well known, and we enjoy hiking in the quiet area.
Pushing Sola in the stroller, we walked about 2.3 miles.

Geode State Park and Burlington Bees

We had a wonderful trip on Saturday!
At Geode State Park, we hiked from the beach at the lake to the campground (almost 3 miles - Google Earth).
The park is well maintained even though the waste water system is temporally down, it would be fun to camp there in the future.
After having dinner at Culver's, we watched the Burlington Bees baseball game.
It was one of the best games we watched (of course, the home team won).
We enjoyed a lot and got home little after 9pm.

Graduation Ceremony

Rich and Donghee will graduate this semester.
It is nice to see two student employees in the GIS Center completing the master's program.
I was invited to attend the ceremony on Friday.

13 Assassins (2010 film)

While Abby went to the scrapbook club in Bushnell, I watched Samurai movie called 13 Assassins.
The story is pretty good but rated R due to the action.
It reminded me Seven Samurai and Last Samurai.
