For your Easter viewing pleasure, here are a few pics from our Southern Illinois Spring Break 2014 Extravaganza. This was maybe our tenth time exploring the area and we still managed to uncover a lot of pretty cool stops along the way. If anyone is ever looking for things to do down south, reach out to us and we will be sure to hook you up. Noel, Corey, and Henna too
A new favorite hangout- the Quetil Trail which begins in Alto Pass (near the Rootbeer Saloon) and maybe goes all the way to Makanda. At least part of it is perfect for bikes. Look for the hidden stairs leading to an overlook.

View of Bald Knob Cross (which our broke state helped pay to restore and also where a volunteer pushed a little bit too much his religious views)
