Starved Rock, IL

In early June I went down to Starved Rock which is a state park in Illinois and right on the Illinois river. It was a bit smelly by the river but the canyons were breathtaking and some of the cliffs had views you wouldn’t imagine seeing in Illinois. Hard to believe this is only 2 hours south of Chicago.   We hiked for nearly 10 miles up and down the canyons and even found a secret nook to enjoy our picnic of champagne with rhubarb hops and a rice bowl. Enjoy the views!
