Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks, USA

Mid August 2007 we decided to go for a day hike in Starved Rock State Park, Illinois, US.

Unfortunately it had real stormy and rainy the two weeks and when we got to the park it was closed off due to severe flooding. A bit of a disappointment but at least we got to watch the visitor center pavillion with only the roof ovr the water.

Drove a few miles down the road to Matthiessen State Park. That place was also partly flooded but we managed to get a good hike around the scenic little canyons.
