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 people around the country think that the Illinois landscape is mostly flat prairie, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Throughout the state are lush forests, rivers, lakes, bluffs, canyons, and some of the most fascinating rock formations you’ll ever see. One such rock formation, known as Old Stoneface, can be found within the Shawnee National Forest and it’s one of the strangest and most fascinating geological wonders in Illinois.
Have you hiked to Old Stoneface in Illinois’ Shawnee National Forest? If you have, what did you think of it? Do you know of any other fascinating rock formations around the state? Please share in the comments.
