Chicago's last beautiful fall day (68 photos)

It appears this past Wednesday was the end of our recent beautiful warm weather. I think even Mother Nature must be a fan of Barack Obama considering how perfectly timed everything was for the election night rally in downtown. We'll probably not be this warm again until at least March if not April. So I made sure I spent some time outside taking in what's left of the beautiful fall colors in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. These photos were taken mainly within a couple blocks of Armitage Avenue. I hope you enjoy them.

Everyone should visit Chi-Town once in their life! Birthplace of much of the International
School of architecture!

Even in its yuppified form, Chicago pics are some of the best.
The city makes it easy to find somethin to like, y'all.
Why is that? Cause it's a freakin awesome place, that's why!

As I've always said, Chicago is certainly one of the better cities in NE Illinois. Clearly in the top 50, but maybe even in the top 10!

Lincoln Park is very beautiful. My 3 favorite neighborhoods: 1) Streeterville, 2) Lincoln Park, and 3) Lake View

Wait, what? Chicago is MAYBE top ten in Northeast Illinois? I'm guessing you meant the Northeast US?
