• The #GardenOfTheGods #ObservationTrail is only 1/4 mile long, but the beauty and variety of the #RockFormations you see have you slowing your pace to take pictures and everything around you in. All of the trail is well built from the native rock and perfectly sculpted into a level pathway that will last. You can climb on the rock formations and they have multiple #ScenicOverlooks from the rock cliffs themselves to wooden decks they built in a couple spots. Some of it is even #WheelchairAccessible.

    This area used to be an ancient shallow sea and after that was further carved out by the #Glaciers. Usually when you hear #Illinois #Chicago comes to mind and you wouldn't even think the state has something like this to offer. The whole Southern part of the state is worth checking out for the adventure minded individuals.

  • I just did some research and in my previous posts showcasing this area, not all the information was correct. It turns out the #trailhead is actually called the #JuniperSpur and the #trail Itself is the #MaahDaahHey. MaahDaahHey is a #MandanNativeAmerican word meaning, "AN AREA THAT WILL BE AROUND FOR A LONG TIME."

    This is the beginning of the 144 mile trail that connects to many others on the way. It winds through #scenery from nearly every category and crosses the #MissouriRiver twice. The mound in the photo is made of #Sandstone, which people have carved their names and various other things all over it. There are some cool rock out croppings all around it that are pretty fun to climb on and they make for some cool looking #RockFormations. I have a lot of photos from this area that I'll be sharing here and there as time goes on.
