Ferne Clyffe- Illinois State Park
It will soon be going on three weeks that we have parked in southern Illinois. The initial reason was to assist our daughter Melissa with babysitting while she was studying for her social work license test. She has since successfully passed that hurdle and we are planning to move northward to St.Louis in the coming week. It has certainly been a joy babysitting our grandson Nathan during the past few weeks! This past week he and his Mom joined John and I on several short hikes at Ferne Clyffe State Park. We are very thankful for the Scout publication, a guide to Southern Illinois tourism and recreation which has made it possible to find this park, as well as many others which I have written about on this site.
