After our Sunday morning service, we loaded up with several of our church friends and carpooled to Giant City State Park in southern Illinois. The weather and season made the drive very enjoyable, but I was amazed at the beauty that seemed to be everywhere inside the park.
We had lunch at the Giant City Lodge, which was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s. The meal consisted of excellent fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, dumplings, and biscuits. It was divine.
