starved rock

We had excellent weather. Thirteen couples camped for the weekend.  The Baulings drove in for Saturday afternoon.  New members, Peter and Judy Schwarz brought their new 2013 Interstate and the Gardners brought their new 2013  22 ft. Sport.  The Dixons make pancakes and sausage for Saturday breakfast.  Everyone chipped in for the Chuck Wagon pot luck dinner Friday.  Many of us climbed the stairs and hiked the trail up the 125 foot high Starved Rock to view of the Illinois River Valley, created when the last glacier retreated 10,000 years ago.  Saturday, some of us ate at the historic rustic Starved Rock Lodge, built by the CCC in the 30’s, and stayed for the music on the Veranda, overlooking the valley. President MacFarland was unable to attend due to car problems.
