My wanderings and ponderings with a little kitsch thrown in for good measure.
Never went here and actually don't remember hearing about it. According to the IL DNR the area has a lot of American Indian history. Well, most of IL does, I guess. I like that. This is the mound builder area!I like the lily pad lake photo that looks like the water is brimming.
Martha,It is very close to the Cahokia Mounds Historical Area. I discovered Heather hasn't been there since she was a child. It is on our list. It is a marvelous site. One of my favorite memories is playing Lacrosse on a field set up where the old plaza was, a place where the inhabitants played a forerunner to the game of Lacrosse.
So pretty. A good way to spend the morning.
It was a wonderful morning. The only downside was Heather forgot her gloves and we couldn't paddle as long as we'd planned. Happily she didn't get a blister just a couple of red and sore hands.
