One of my favorite places, out around the loop. It always makes me think of a song by John Denver, called Cool and Green and Shady. Here are the lyrics:

Saturday’s, holidays, easy afternoon
Lazy days, summer days, nothing much to do
Rainy days are better days, for hanging out inside
Rainy days and city ways make me want to hide
Someplace cool and green and shady.

Find yourself a piece of grassy ground
Lay down, close your eyes
Find yourself and maybe lose yourself
While your free spirit flies
(musical interlude)

August skies, lullabys, promises to keep
Dandelions and twisting vines, Clover at your feet
memories of Aspen leaves, trembling on the wind
Honeybees and fantasies
Where to start again
Someplace cool and green and shady
Cool and green and shady

Cool and green and shady

Cool and green and shady

Cool and green and shady

Words and music by John Denver and Joe Henry
