Episode 15 — Canyons in Illinois, Planning Routes

On today’s episode, we hike into the many and varied canyons and waterfalls at Starved Rock and Matthiessen state parks, two gems of geology set in the midst of farmland along I-80. We talk about the tools we use and some tips for planning your route in an RV, how Michigan state parks are combating overbooking, and our new food series on RV Miles, RVEpicure.
