Somewhere in Southern Illinois

Last weekend, we had a family reunion at a state park in southern Illinois.  It was great to see daddy's family, including some of my 10,362 cousins, and it was also great to visit a park I haven't been to since I was a kid.  It's a beautiful peaceful place that makes you ponder the native Americans and others who walked across that land many many years ago, and I couldn't help but admire the artwork Mother Nature had on display.  It has a natural spring and lots of rock formations that have been there for centuries.  It was a good reminder of the beauty that sits in my backyard and that I sometimes forget is there.  This really is a pretty part of our nation.  Note to self:  Go back during a wetter season to take pictures of the waterfall in action.
