Continuing with my series of photos taken at Garden of the Gods in Southern Illinois' Shawnee National Forest. the many trails and paths that wind around the park are very diverse. Some are very easy and others are quite a workout.
Taking the more difficult trails doesn't come without its rewards. You get to see some of the most interesting and ancient rock formations in the central United States. Some are rounded and others are very steep. Its like a totally new topography around every corner.
This image depicts one of the many rocky outcrops along the trails. The whole area is like a completely different world in so many ways.
