Just like last year, the leaves seem to be staying green and then just suddenly falling off the trees. But, we decided to give Starved Rock another autumn go. Two years ago we went and we caught it at the perfect time. The leaves were red, yellow and orange. The waterfalls were even still going. It was gorgeous and I didn't bring my camera.
No waterfalls this time, but it's still a magnificent place to go. The trees were still mostly green in the park. The drive up however, was very colorful. We hiked about 8 miles. And don't feel sorry for Elroy, it didn't even wind him. People kept coming up to us and saying, "Awww, how's he doing?" and "Poor little guy." If they only knew. But, a Rottweiler did try to eat him.
