On our way to Springfield, IL for the funeral, we stopped to Starved Rock State Park in Utica. It’s about an hour and a half west of Chicago.
The park lies next to the Illinois River.
Please ignore my pale legs. It had recently rained, so a lot of the trails were muddy.
Also, ignore how sweaty and gross I look. Both Saturday and Sunday, I wore my new Victoria Beckham tops, big mistake. On Saturday, I wore the marigold applique tank. Next time I go hiking, I’m wearing work out tops or older shirts.Starved Rock is a nice state park but I’ve been to better. In fact, it’s one of the biggest tour attractions in Illinois. If you’re in the area, check it out, otherwise don’t plan a trip just to go there.
