OK, here's one of your clicks! Hadn't noticed this was also yours, but it's nice one! And I noticed your friend Umit has us both beat by a page!

Thanks Kamaly, I never get bored from going to Starved Rock. Cheers, Volkan

What is it? A bluff above the river? The map view looks a lot like the scene of my Columbia River Gorge rainbow. Is that a hydroelectric dam? (oh. now I'm seeing why you go out there. :-) )

Kamaly, I think it is one of the many canal locks in the river/canal. I wish it was a hydroelectric dam ;) Cheers, Volkan

Thanks much Cindy. Because trails are open till late in the evening, it is possible to experience this in person for those who are from around Chicago. Best wishes, Volkan
