Needed a hotel close to Starved Rock and this one advertises as being the closest. Good Best Western quality. Not expensive, with good facilities. Friendly helpful check in staff. Have used this brand a few times recently. Possibly better quality than Comfort Inn and definitely better than Quality Inn. 2 queen beds. Fridge and microwave but only one chair at a small table. Small almost square pillows but soft.

Slept with the blinds open and it was lovely to look out and see trees, stars and planes flying across the sky. Woke to see the early morning glow and lay in bed watching the sunrise colour the clouds.

It turns out the boleta touristica is a real thing that the communities of the canyon have imposed on tourists. It is compulsory and unlike in the sacred valley they offer only one option: to buy a ticket for 10 days. For 70 soles. We found this insanely frustrating. Not only because there was only a 10 ...
Let it be known that this town is a genuinely happy town. I don’t think we met a single person today who didn’t smile, greet us, and (in most cases) laugh heartily while hanging out with a couple of circus folk. Even their 4th-6th graders enjoyed and laughed during their clown assembly (most kids their age would’ve scoffed and made fun, but they had a great time). I think the Kelly Miller Circus is going to make Washburn a circus town!
We were sad to leave our beautiful hotel room in Mason City, but we began our trip east toward Starved Rock State Park, Illinois. We knew it would be a long driving day, so we took off early and found a place to eat in Mason City (thanks again, Yelp!) and got on the road by 8 a.m.
We wanted to visit a fossil park in Rockford, Iowa, just a few miles south of our route, but when we got to the town, the bridge across ...
... br> 4. The contract they originally had for us required that we come back in late August, making getting a job as a high school teacher when I get back pretty much impossible.
5. It's really freakin' cold.
But much like she did with all of the paperwork leading up to this point, Jill convinced Drew and I that we should buckle down and do it. That girl will be the death of me. She reminded me (not in so many words) that adventure is ...
