Hocking Hills SP, OH & Cypress Swamps, southern IL (Trip # 10) May 2013

Our first Road Scholar trip - 3 nights at the cypress swamps of southern Illinois along the Cache River (south of St. Louis).  Based out of the Giant City State Park, we stayed in individual cabins and ate our meals in the main lodge.  This was a great experience, and has us seriously considering longer Road Scholar experiences (see trip # 16).

On the drive down, we travelled through Amish country in Ohio.

Stopped off at Hocking Hills State Park in southern Ohio to do some hiking on the way.  Beautiful waterfalls and river eroded rock walls.
