Garden of the Gods – Illinois

I have been to Garden of the Gods nestled deep in the Shawnee National Forest more times than I can count, but on my bucket list was to visit this iconic spot at sunset.


We spent a few days in July roaming around Shawnee seeing places like Cave-in-Rock State Park, Ferne Clyffe State Park and Rim Rock. On our last night, we watched the sunset at Garden of the Gods.




We picked a secluded spot on the rocks and watch the sun disappear behind the Shawnee hills.


Ellie was less than impressed with the sunset and found a rock bowl to lay in..facing away from the sunset LOL.


It was the perfect ending to a much needed trip!
