It finally snowed this weekend, so while driving back from visiting Mom in Eastern Iowa, we stopped at Starved Rock State Park in central Illinois. It's a surprising place with limestone bowls several stories high that have been carved out by waterfalls over the millennia. The park lies on the banks of the Illinois River (and near the I & M canal that effectively connected Lake Michigan to the Mississippi River, allowing Chicago to grow into a major transportation center). Anyway, a picture, courtesy of Nicole.
