    A little late on this post but I just now got these hosted. This is a place a couple hours from me called Garden of the Gods in Illinois. Very neat place, just thought I'd share.

    That's a neat looking place. Reminds me of the baths in the BVIs.

    Is that in southern Illinois I assume? Lived in Wisconsin for several years and would have gone to this if were in the northern part of the state.

    Lol - It's pretty damn cool if you're into that kind of thing. It's pretty unbelievable.

    JPro- Yup, it's in Southern Illinois.

    Went to Colorado about six months ago and drove through the Garden of the Gods park. My wife and I really weren't all that into it.

    Some of those photos remind me of the Natural Bridge State Resort Park in Slade, Kentucky. I was there back in 2002 and it blew me away. Beautiful country.

    That's pretty neat. Not as cool as the one in Colorado, but still pretty neat.

    Definitely looks like a good time. Six hour drive for me is no joke though. Not happening anytime soon.

    Only an hour away from me; been there plenty of times.

    Oh, and your jacket is missing a D at the beginning and an E on the end ;)

    I love that place. Nice pcitures. Did you check out Rim Rock? It's pretty close to Garden of the Gods.

    :eek: :puke: Can't wait for Nov 6. to start off the season playing Dukey. :p Should be a burner...

    Thank you.. Yup, Some of those pictures are actually from Rim Rock.. We went to Garden of the Gods and then made our way to Rim rock. I can't wait to go in the Fall to take pics again. I'm sure it's amazing.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Edit- CobraBOB - Nice! I have been there too! There are some really neat places to visit around my area within a couple hours of travel.

    Agreed! I'm hoping to scoop up some tickets if possible. If not, I'm still not going into work so I can watch it :p; I've got some money riding on that game LOL.
