I went last week to Starved Rock in Utica about 2 hrs from Chicago. I wanted to go 2 weeks earlier and try to see a bit more colorful fall but I didn’t wake up early after getting home late in Halloween. Most of the leaves were already in the ground, so it was not that pretty like last year’s fall that I went earlier.  I was really impressed to know that a place like this was so close from Chicago. I first heard about it from some friends and then I saw it and all that stuff of how places like this are made in my physical science class last year. The curse was very interesting (  btw, the teacher was great, too,  I love her 🙂 ) that made me want to check out this place…
