Our Family’s Trip To Shawnee National Forest

Last month we took the kids to Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois. Although I suffered several my-kids-are-going-to-fall-off-a-cliff heart attacks on the Garden of the Gods hike it was a blast. Here are some highlights.

  1. Hi! My husband and I LOVE hiking, but are a little apprehensive about taking the kiddos? They are 5, almost 4, and 19 months. Should we just wait until they’re older?
