Starved Rock October 24th

WRAPUP:  The anticipated bad weather held off except for about 5 minutes of rain, and we enjoyed a warm mostly sunny day of motoring on some wonderful back roads.  A large crowd of 33 MINIs and almost 60 people came out for an all day drive, some from far-away and exotic places like southern Wisconsin, Indiana, and Champaign.   We had a long first part of the drive from Schaumburg to the lunch stop in Morris, and half of the group got to experience the now famous Ashley road, while the other half opted to blast past the turn and take the more direct route in ;-)  After a group lunch and a bit of hangout time we piled back in our cars and took the quieter back roads out to Starved Rock.  Traffic was mostly light, except for some slow moving vehicles in the tightest of turns.  The park was a bit less crowded than usual, and many people hung around a while and took a short hike up the “rock”.  Huge thanks to Gary for his help putting this years route together, and pre-driving the course.
