I’m back! Last week, Nik, Rand and I ran away! We spent the week at my parents’ new house and explored the surrounding southern Illinois area. As I promised, I took a lot of photos! Here’s the first part of them.
Here and there, Rand tried to jump off the bluffs! Thankfully, Nik was ready to haul him back from the edge every time.
Once we finished that trail, we had a little picnic lunch and then went off on a more forested hike.
The rock formations all around us were incredible.
We kept hiking along and it started getting more difficult to find the trail. The map I’d brought along wasn’t very helpful and we didn’t see any more signs after awhile. We got a bit lost! So we turned around and headed back the way we came.
None of us minded getting lost in the forest –it was a beautiful place and we weren’t really lost, nothing scary!
