What is the 606? It is the last three digits of the zip code of Chicago's news 2.7 mile recreational path that is just opening. It used to be the Bloomingdale Trail Rail line that was just converted to a great space for bike riding, jogging and just a nice walk. The Logan Square neighborhood needed 99 more acres of open space according to city regulations so Chicago formed "Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail", an organization whose vision and mission were key to creating The 606.
You can read more about it at the 606 web site. You will find this very interesting. I can't wait to go check it out and go for a hike. We made a deal that long walks are going to be a way to get in shape and enjoy the outdoors and take some photos of nature. What more can I say? Here is a great video to watch, I hope you are as excited as I am and let me know if you want to go for a walk.
