Man, what a better way to close the summer and really kick off fall, than to hike around the woods in crisp yet sunny 65 degree weather? That's what I did on Saturday and oh, was it worth the two hour drive to Starved Rock! I've been wanting to go back since childhood, and after Marlen's post about the place earlier this summer, I knew I had to bite the bullet. Thanks to my friend Sarah for making the trek with me! I already want to go back. :)
I have officially been drinking hot beverages with the chilly weather we've had, but can honestly say that my fingers are still crossed for a little more warmth before true autumn hits.
A girl can dream, right?
