This One Jaw Dropping Place In Illinois Will Blow You Away

Nature created this park over thousands of years, and the result is “palisades,” which is the name for steep cliffs along the sides of the river. So be prepared for your jaw to drop and make the drive over to Savanna, Illinois to explore this amazing natural feature.
