McHenry County isn't very flat, either
Did I say that Ogle County isn't flat? Well, neither is McHenry County, particularly around a notorious segment of the Prairie Trail through Sterne's Woods near Crystal Lake. But this picture was actually taken closer to the middle of nowhere: northwest of Hebron on the north end of the county, looking west. The rolling, tree-covered hills took me completely by surprise, even though I really ought to have known better. It's not like I've never been there before, although I suppose it was the first time I ever biked through the area. Hills are much more noticeable when you're pedaling.
