A Place to Remember: Pere Marquette National Park, Graffton,IL

4 years ago

I love fall season. The smell,the color,the feel..everything. Umm..ok one exception..dead dry leaves all over your yard. For someone who was born and raised in 2 seasoned place,fall is quite amazing. My husband and i come to this place almost every fall, it is called Pere Marquette,scenic drive. Located not far from where i live. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pere_Marquette_State_Park Pere Marquette State Park is an 8,050-acre protected area in southwestern Jersey County, Illinois, United States. It is located near the city of Grafton, Illinois, at the confluence of the Mississippi River and the Illinois River. To get there,we had to drive through a town called Alton. The views in Alton,Illinois are not bad either. Before you reach the national park,you will find many bars and eating place on both sides of the streets. The national park located on the right side of the street,then you have to drive up and down the hills. I was wishing to see wild life there but it did not happen. And i wish they had public toilet up there,because i needed one so bad hahaha. I will definitively go there again. I recommend this place for you who love to take beautiful pictures of fall. And make sure you go back before dark,because the sunsets along the road back to Alton is beautiful too and romantic if you will, as you see on the 3rd picture,it is not edited at all,and i only use regular pocket camera.
