Now, I'm wondering how it is that I have been to Southern Illinois about 400 times in my life as mom's family is all from the Harrisburg area, yet I have never heard of the "Garden of the Gods" until today?!?!?!! A friend of mine posted a picture on Facebook of him sitting on top of this crazy penis shaped rock, lol. So I did some searching online and imagine my surprise when all this ripe hiking area was so close to where I've been so many times in my life, and also where I want to return to so I can take some pics of family graves?!?!?!
We might have to add this to our Spring Break Illinois trip!!!
