I don't know this kid, but gorgeous picture & that's exactly how you are - exposed - in the open - high in the air on a rock!
There were amazing places all over like this - Bald Knob Cross, The Little Grand Canyon, Fat Man Squeeze (yes this girls hips were too fat to fit through), Giant City Park (tons of very cool rocks), Garden of the Gods, and even a huge wine country.
So basically - if you are ever looking for a place to see some stunning views - I highly suggest Southern Illinois. There is so much to offer for the eyes. Also - if your kids decide to go to school here - don't cringe. They will honestly get a very good education & they will fall in love with my alma mater as well!
