Visitors to Starved Rock State Park are continually surprised and awed at the spectacular natural features found here. Surrounded by the flat, seemingly endless fields of Illinois farm country, a totally different topography is found within the park. Starved Rock was formed thousands of years ago by the melting of glaciers releasing torrents of water. As the water rushed downstream it eroded and stripped away everything in its path except the resistant St. Peter sandstone. It is that sandstone that formed the steep rock walls and the cool dark valleys of the eighteen canyons. Starved Rock Visitor Center also offers exhibits for guests to view.

We will try to carpool as it is a 2 ½ drive from Waukesha County. Plan to meet at the park at 10:30 am. We will not go if it’s raining that day and will re-schedule. There are several of us that also want to have dinner that day in their historic lodge main dining room. I have made a reservation at 5 pm for 10 people.
If you are interested in attending please e-mail your name and email address that way I can communicate details with the attendees. Cathy Ward firstname.lastname@example.org also feel to call me with questions at 262-227-4551.
