Waterfalls of Starved Rock

This park blew my mind.  It is completely obvious why there was a Native American presence here for so long.  It is absolute paradise.  The mini canyons seem to be endless, and they all seem to lead to a gorgeous waterfall.  This is one of those places you could photograph your whole life, and never get bored.  I certainly didn’t, hiking about 12 hours without a break without even realizing it.  Here are some examples, and more can be found in the Sacred Waterfalls Book.
