This line of Christmas trees has intrigued me for a couple weeks.
It is by Interstate 57 and 80 in southern Cook County.
The trees on ice and snow intrigued me enough to spark my Sun-Times column yesterday, based on talking with biologist Ken Clodfelter about sinking trees for fish cover.
I try to sneak around in the dark when I sink our Christmas tree, so people (other fishermen) don't see where I put it. That is why the line above fascinates me. It is out in the open and looks like it is set on a break line.
But that is only guessing. I can't figure out how to get to the lake without walking in from I-57. If anybody knows anything about how or who the trees are being set, I would love to know.
I am curious about stuff like that.
