Here in Deerfield IL, where Terrie and Garry host me at the Chestnut Lodge, on Monday Feb 22, I discovered a disc golf course between two parks, Keller on the west and Alan Shepard on the east. Threw the 9 hole course here , as I started the pattern of playing each day to stay in shape walking and throwing.
Example of a multiple use back, with a basket near a playground. Late February with brown grass and wet thawing ground.
Example at pad #3 of how the course is easily followed without carrying a map.
#5 is the first one in Shepard Park and a small creek is crossed with the throw with the basket under the evergreen. Note the walking bridge to the left.
Final hole in Shepard Park with distinct map on the pad.
Visit to Graceland Cemetery, resting place of JJ and Frances Glessner.
I arranged a meeting with a MKP man, Burke in the neighborhood by Graceland Cemetery Tuesday Feb 23, and arrived at Graceland around 10 AM. Got a map and walked to this site, two simple slabs to honor my Glessner relatives by a small lake.
Snowdrops, an early spring flower, shining and greeting me near the grave site on the cool morning.

Beginning of the course by the road to the east at Pulaski Park.
Got up early at the Chestnut Lodge and drove south beginning at 5 AM on Wednesday Feb 24, just before Bloomington IL, saw a light snow haze and got heavier as I drove south
