January 12 Humboldt Park

This Saturday we will go back to one of our favorite spots, winter and summer: Humboldt Park.

Meet at the boathouse at 8:30 a.m. (The boathouse is on the east side of Humboldt Avenue, just south of the lagoon. There is a parking lot the the south of the boathouse.)

Directions here.

(The photo is from 1905, when they used to have cross-country ski racing and ski jump competitions in Humboldt Park. What, you thought the statue of Leif Erikson was there just because? This used to be a Norwegian neighborhood.)
