The Green Canyon

Starved Rock State Park near Utica, Illinois. This was taken in September 2011 and the creeks were pretty dry, hence no waterfalls. I aim to go back next spring as these canyons are known to have some beautiful falls when there is water flowing. And there is so much more to see than I was able on my first trip around.

I am thinking of a place to go within the next couple weekends, before the weather gets bad and the holiday business begins. I have that itch for a road trip that creeps in so often.
