So this won’t be a ginormous post of pictures, I’ll split it up into a couple of parts.
On Wednesday, we visited Starved Rock in Utica, Illinois.
We climbed to the top of Starved Rock.
And looked out at the Illinois (not Fox Valley like I thought) River and its lock.
And we could see the other mountainous overlook – Lover’s Leap.
For a brief history behind Starved Rock and Lover’s Leap, you can read about it HERE.
We descended into the first canyon, called French Canyon. The path was mighty treacherous in parts.
It was glorious to be here with my daughters. I’ve been about a dozen or so times, but this was the first time with my girls.
But we all had a great climbing expedition.
Getting up was the easy part. Going down, notsomuch.
Playing in the rivulet of water.
