Well, this is soooooo cool! This is Volo Bog which is located about 1 hr from Chicago at the sourthwest corner of Lake County. Why is it cool? See all the plant life...trees even...they are floating! The inner plants 50 feet deep! I told you it was cool! :-) And it is the only open water quaking bog in IL! It was created over 10,000 years ago...end of Ice Age time! A big chuck of a glacier got stuck deep in the ground and created this cool site! Check out the link & think about making a trip there to Turn Your Blue Mind On!
Look at this picture in the fall! Wow!
