Starved Rock, Day Two

Day two at Starved Rock was another lovely hot spring day! We did not hike nearly as long as the day before, though I would have loved to! This time, we visited the three falls we had never been to in years past: two on the very east, and the third on the western side of the park.

The one year we had checked out Council Overhang, it was so muddy, we dared not venture beyond the overhang to the two waterfalls there! These are located on the east side of Starved Rock State Park.
Approaching Council Overhang--it's right around the bend!

Huge boulders were scattered in front of the falls

Should you get the chance, I hope you'll be inspired to enjoy the beauty Starved Rock State Park has to offer! --LKR
