Today, we decided to venture out into the world down a very familiar road, in fact it was one of our favorite places to visit. While the trees may have had the beautiful colors a week or so ago today there were few that still had on their colorful leaves many have all ready shed them. We were able to stop for a bite to eat. We can never get enough delicious fish from the river boat restraint in E-town Illinois.
Before long we drove by one of our favorite places as the source of one of our favorite outdoor sports. We hike quite a bit and hunt for spar. Southern Illinois has and has had a great source of spar for quite some time. The economics of the small area even depended on the mines of the area.
