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.
Chasing waterfalls is a favorite pastime of many and those who live in the Prairie State are lucky to have several gorgeous falls to visit. Among the most popular are Cascade Falls and Giant’s Bathtub Falls at Matthiessen State Park, Jackson Falls in the Shawnee National Forest, and the numerous falls that can be found at Starved Rock State Park. But if you prefer to search for a hidden waterfall in Illinois, take a trip to Apple River Canyon State Park.
