No Hikers After Dark

As we were leaving Starved Rock State Park yesterday afternoon, we noticed a sign in the parking lot of the Lodge. Among other rules were “no hikers after dark.” So we pledged to never break that rule again-----though our hike in the morning was technically not after dark; rather, before dawn. We did a lot of hiking before we left the park in the afternoon, including 2 places we’d never been before, both beautiful spots, and without another person around. Here is John in Aurora Canyon. We arrived home at 5:45, and immediately started raking. Today, it’s back to work.
