Starved Rock

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).


And another of my favorite parts of nature. . . rock.  Starved Rock is full of beautiful canyons. (And, of course, there’s another great tree!)

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!
