Spruce Plot - Morton Arboretum
On a recent day, we were poking around the Morton Arboretum when we pulled over and got the kids out at the Spruce Plot. It was empty and we had the whole place to ourselves. I still remember the first time that I went to the Arboretum and walked in the Spruce Plot. It was a magical experience. It is hard to NOT smile when you walk in there. And...having been there many times since, it is magical still.
The Morton Arboretum site describes it as having a 'quite mystery':
The quiet mystery of the spruce plot at The Morton Arboretum will make you feel as if you were hiking in the forests of Norway and Romania.
