About the Author

Pamela's photoPamela Van Giessen

Pam is an 18 year resident of Rogers Park who took to power walking with her rescue English Setter, Boomer, a few years ago.  Boomer was once someone’s hunting dog and is the best couch canine in the world but who needs a job to be content.  Since hunting isn’t permitted in Chicago, Pam decided that Boomer might enjoy the occupation of power walking off their energy.  They seem to have found a perfect rhythm, clocking in anywhere from 3-10 miles a day, most days.  As it turns out, recent studies have suggested that eating a Mediterranean diet (just say yes to everything at a farmer’s market), gardening (thus justifying Pam’s other passion, the Rogers Park Garden Group), and walking can stave off Alzheimer’s disease (and probably a lot of other heath problems). In the course of walking, Pam and Boomer have come across many wonderful sights. They thought others might enjoy the extraordinary images they see around the neighborhood and beyond - the surprising things that make their daily walks around Rogers Park and Chicago a constant source of delight.
