Garden of the Gods

While in Southern Illinois, my husband and I took a day trip out to Garden of the Gods, located in Shawnee National Forrest.  It is a beautiful place.

Over the years, the elements have sculpted some of the most stunning and extraordinary rock formations known to man. This garden of sandstone sculptures and vast untouched wilderness was fittingly named Garden of the Gods.

I grew up in Southern Illinois.  Sometimes when I'm away for too long, I forget just how much I love summer there.  Everything is blooming and growing.  It is simply beautiful.

Mattie

Over the weekend, I got to play with photograph Mattie, the Boston Terrier. She is very energetic and sweet.  The poor thing had a run in with a cat though, that gave her a permanent snake tongue (which always hangs out).



See all of Mattie's photos here.
