We are again parked in Southern Illinois, by Crab Orchard Lake. However, our stay here has been brief and we are planning on moving north tomorrow. We would like to find an area of cooler temperatures, if that is possible. We have also come to observe that campgrounds may not be the desirable place for us, as we are more apt to have to deal with smokey campfires and flying tiny critters. RV parks are a bit more to our liking, especially during the summertime. The humidity was quite high yesterday when we hiked on one of the trails of Crab Orchard Refuge. John had read that the Rocky Bluff Trail in the park had beautiful scenery with intermittent waterfalls and sandstone cliffs. The refuge brochure also warned about steep, rocky sections on the trail- I took a walking stick with me, but used it more for swinging it in the air around me to ward off flying insects! I must say however, it was still a pleasant hike because of the trees along the trail which offered us plenty of shade.
