This weekend my husband and I took the kids to Rim Rock to enjoy the beauty of the fall colors. Rim Rock is about a 30 to 35 minute drive from our home, and since the kids were asking to go, we all loaded into the mini-van and headed to Rim Rock.

The kids had a ball, and we all enjoyed the magnificent views! The leaves were yellow, red and orange. The weather was a tad bit chilly, but we didn’t mind.

My youngest son wanted to climb on every cliff he saw. I did allow him to climb some of the smaller rocks that weren’t far from the ground, but I stopped him from climbing the taller cliffs. It had rained the day before, so I knew the cliffs would be wet and slippery, and that’s why I didn’t let him get too close to the edge of the high cliffs. You just have to know JB. He loves to climb things. When they play in the yard, I know I can always find him in the tree. 😉

If you live in or near Southern Illinois, or if you’re planning a trip to Southern Illinois soon, you’ve just got to take a drive to Rim Rock. It’s so beautiful this time of year! Rim Rock is located on Karbers Ridge Blacktop.
