I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and I love photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world! Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream.
The Prairie State is full of beautiful scenery and nature that’s beyond compare. And if you’re someone who enjoys heading into the woods to connect with nature and the trees, consider a trip to Beall Woods State Park & Nature Preserve. Home to a remarkable old-growth forest in Illinois, here you can take a contemplative stroll among the towering trees.
