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.

We met a couple who said they had been hiking in the canyon for 3 or 4 days and hadn't seen any. They are heading to the Cruz del Condor to see them. As cool as seeing the condors was, you can only watch ...
... Illinois, where we found our KOA campground.
The campground was tight as tight could be. We had 70 by 35 foot camp lots and couldn't even put out our awning because of the proximity between us and our neighbors. The property was well-maintained with a nice cow farm behind us though..... bright side? It was, however, nicer than the one in Washington, PA.
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 ...
