Travel Diary | Starved Rock State Park, IL

Hi everyone,

Last week I was on Spring break, and therefore the husband and I decided to rent a car and drive to Starved Rock State Park.  It was a quick weekend getaway to explore an Illinois attraction that has been rated as a top place to visit. Since we visited end of March, the park was still in transition mode from Winter, therefore most of the trees were bare, and the waterfalls were in their falling ice stage– beautiful to see in person. Despite all this we had a great time hiking around the park, and being surrounded by nature’s serenity. Here are some snaps from our day at Starved Rock.

That was our hiking day out at Starved Rock. It was beautiful in it’s current stage, but I can only imagine how beautiful it looks during late Spring and Fall when all the trees are in full bloom and the park looks lively. If you would like to see more snaps from our day you can visit our gallery here.
