Wandering around at Starved Rock State Park (Utica, IL)

Today was an absolutely beautiful day to go roaming around Starved Rock State Park.  I haven't been there in years.  I was shocked to see that they've basically paved the paths so there was no real climbing, which on some levels I was relieved, yet also saddened.  When I asked a park ranger he told me it was to preserve the land.   I was also shocked at how crowded it was on in the middle of the week and it's not even summer yet.

I hope while watching both films you feel like you spent the day wandering the woods with me or at least feel like you took a mini vacation.
