Beside the Big River
We're camped beside the Mississippi at the Big River State Forest in Illinois. This site is mostly deserted this time of year, but I like it that way. I have fond memories of this place. After the World Fantasy Convention in Minneapolis in 2002, we stopped here and camped. In the back of my mind, I've considered that the starting point in Mary Ann's serious nature photography. She was shooting a consumer Olympus back then, but she took some wonderful photos of a Sun Pillar from this campground. This is my photo, believe me hers was much better. It's hanging on our wall at home.
