This sounds like a perfect family adventure or maybe even a fun date night activity! I would love to get out and explore the Sodalis Nature Preserve, especially at night because it will cool off, and you get to take in that big beautiful country night time sky! I love looking up at the stars and finding the constellations, I use to work at the Alder Planetarium in Chicago teaching people how to find the constellations, and let me tell you it's a lot easier to find the stars in the Tri-States compared to the bright city lights of Chicago!
