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.
Many hiking trails throughout Illinois lead to places of unexpected beauty. From scenic overlooks to canyons and otherworldly rock formations, to vast stretches of prairie land, rivers, and waterfalls, the varied landscape of Illinois is exciting to explore. If you’re in the mood for an adventure through the forest where you’ll happen upon a small lake tucked away in the trees, then the Beverly Lake Forest Preserve Trail is what you’re looking for.
