Starved Rock State Park: Trip Report

I haven't been to Starved Rock State Park in years. There aren't too many good places to go hiking near Chicago. Stephanie and Mark suggested coming here. Stephanie knows the area well as she went here many times growing up in central Illinois.

The hiking was ok. There wasn't too much wildlife but it was nice to spend a day outside in "nature".
