Starved Rock State park is a beautiful destination located in Utica Illinois.
Wrapup: Fantastic fall weather, beautiful roads, and 50+ other MINIs out for a Sunday cruise. How can it get any better?
Thanks to Dustin and Conrad for the route planning, mapping, and organizing. Huge thanks to Patrick MINI for supplying a great starting point, Halloween donuts + Coffee, and to Lori for bringing cider.
If anyone has links to pictures, sent them to me, and I will add them here.
This will be the Chicago MINI Motoring Club’s 3rd fall trip out there to enjoy the scenic roads and fall colors.
Where: Starting point is Patrick MINI in Schaumburg.
If you just can’t make it to Patrick MINI, the 2nd “meetup point” will be the Jewel Store located on Galena Blvd 1.3 miles west of Rt. 56 (and just before Il-47). Please park in the small lot on the south side of the store. We should be there by 10:30am
When: Sunday October 29th meet at 9:30, hit the road at 10:00 (1st day of Standard time)
Things to bring: Comfortable clothes for the weather, toll money or an I-pass, an FRS radio (optional, to assist with travel communication), a full tank of gas, a camera, and a smile!!
We will enjoy Sunday Brunch at Starved Rock Lodge. Hope for a nice warm day to enjoy a walk or hike at the Rock.
This will be a most-of-the-day event.
