On Saturday morning, after arriving in Illinois on our little road trip, my aunt and uncle treated me and Bex to breakfast at the Giant City Lodge located in a beautiful, 4,000 acre Illinois State Park. I had requested this little side-trip to show Bex the lodge because my grandfather helped build it as part of the CCC back during the Depression. Also, my Uncle Moose worked in the park for many years and he gave us the "real" tour! Here are a few pictures from this beautiful place.
Of course, my monkey-child has no problem climbing ANYTHING!
These bluffs are so pretty!
