The Morton Arboretum’s unique, interactive holiday light show was one for the record books. With snow gently falling the night of our woodland stroll, it was like being part of our own snow globe experience. Hug a tree and see the naked beauty light up with love in response; watch tendrils of lights dance merrily across a pond; hear Tchaikovsky’s, “The Nutcracker Suite” illuminate the wooded landscape; see a galaxy of glowing orbs cover an entire hillside as the million points of light pay homage to an enormous tree as bare as it was beautiful.
These spotlights were located at the end of the 1-mile walk. They were a wonderful finale to an evening of magic.
If you can’t make this year’s “Illumination,” you can catch the annual event next holiday season; or share my experience that night via my blog at http://www.aplacecalledroam.com/home/the-morton-arboretum-an-illuminating-look-at-trees-the-holidays.
During The Morton Arboretum's annual Illumination event, a grove along the mile-long path was lit with chandeliers hung high in the Red Pine trees. Music in the background with the snow falling softly overhead left a memory unlike any other.

Ice Melting On Lake Surfaces in Winter *A Beautiful Nature*
I saw a very rare, warm and fascinating sunset moment inside the forest reserved, whereas Rising Sun in Autumn *A Beautiful Nature*
Dawn is the beginning of the day, how amazing if your day starting with a beautiful misty sunrise as like this scene. Photo captured at The Morton Arboretum Lisle, Illinois USA during sunrise moment.
Photo Licensed by iLOVEnature's Photography Inspiration l All rights reserved Morton Arboretum #LifeAtExpedia! Please check this brewery out! Had the Bob Ross, which is a scotch based ale and it was delicious.
On Thursday they do roll outs for new beer, and Friday they have food trucks in the lot! Small brewery located in a strip mall, but the atmosphere inside is industrial, crafty, and filled with loyal customers.
Highly recommended! The annual Illumination event at The Morton Arboretum offers a chance to view the arboretum at night and all dressed up for Christmas! #Red #LifeAtExpedia
