Our family visited STARVED ROCK ILLINOIS STATE PART on Jan 1/1.
Last year, we went to Loyola beach on the first day of 2014 after attending morning prayer meeting. We took pictures and made good New Year resolutions. In 2015 we planned to do a similar thing but in little different way. This time, we went to the mountain to see the sunrise but we were too lazy to do it. In the morning we cleaned our house. We left home around 2pm with packed lunch. We planned to eat while we were heading to the mountain. We drove for one and half hour and arrived there at 4pm. We were all amazed by the short distance. It was quite late but we enjoyed the remaining time. It was a great experience!
