In June, 2003 I drove to Chicago to give a series of Diversity presentations at the Lucent facility in Naperville, IL.  While I was there I stayed with a friend who lives in Naperville, and I had the opportunity to explore a bit.

This mural is painted on the side of a building in the center of town



A major feature of the central part of Naperville is the River Walk, a park that extends along both banks of the DuPage River.



Naperville has created a number of large "Forest Reserves" that are being returned to prairie.

The Lucent facilities that I visited are interesting in their own right.
