Garden of the Gods – Southern Illinois

(*Initially when I tried to find out more information about the Garden of the Gods in Southern Illinois, I was taken to a park with the same name in Colorado.)

Garden of the Gods in Southern Illinois is part of the Shawnee Forest. It has a very tranquil energy and is a great place to watch sunsets. It’s hard to believe that this was once a part of the ocean.
