This post is an excuse to post some pictures. 🙂 I had a lovely time with two awesome teacher pals at Starved Rock National Park this week. We’ll begin with one of my favorite parts of nature — water (and well-placed trees).
A gorgeous natural high rise that we discovered by accident. (Some of the trails are a little confusing.) Look for the blue jacket. . .
These wildflowers followed us throughout our long 7.5 mile hike. This was the farthest we’d ever hiked. I’m looking forward to our next visit!
