Hiking @ Starved Rock State Park

Last Sunday, the husband & I took Jobie to Starved Rock State Park (2 hours SW of Chicago.) It was a beautiful day full of sun and zero humidity. Those days seem so few and far between lately... (The photo below shows how blue the sky was. It wasn't touched up!) It was my first trip to Starved Rock. I didn't expect to hike on wood plank walkways and to see so many kiddies and baby strollers! But it was still a great workout. We had to climb up & down quite a few steps that had us (and Jobie!) working up a sweat.
It's hard to believe that there is this kind of scenery in IL. It's so flat everywhere else!
