A Fine Day in Nature..Ferne Clyffe State Park, Marion, Illinois

Hi Everyone,
Marion is not exactly the hub of excitement but they do have this nice state park…Ferne Clyffe.
They also have a Gander Mountain sporting goods store, so after the purchase of some new, badly needed hiking boots and a new, also badly needed, grill….we set out for the day.

Heading home with the promise of grilled dog chicken and sausages on a swanky new grill..kind of sad to be excited about such a thing but the last grill (RIP) had gotten beyond the cleaning stage…I am sure you all can relate.

Inching our way southeast with a short travel day tomorrow….stay tuned…
Xxoo
