Watch the Sunset at Axehead Lake

Des Plaines, Illinois

Description

Added by Lisa Wieczorek

Small, serene lake amidst a large city that you can sit with a journal or fish at. 

In a large city, it's nice to be able to find pockets of nature oasis amidst the chaos. It's great to come here with a journal or sketchbook and pass the time while watching the sunset. Fishing is available at this lake and there is a forest preserve that has a couple small trails.
