This Matthiessen State Park Album is full of photos for you to enjoy. My first trip to Matthiessen was awesome. Adventure through waterfalls and scenic overpasses with me.

Every state has their favorite scenic places that they call their favorite places. And this park is no different. People will travel for hours to enjoy these scenic places.

My first visit to this park was breathtaking. I wondered how mother nature could keep something so beautiful under wraps. Travel down this path with me deep into the heart of one luscious forest, filled with beauty.

If you enjoy enhancing your skills at low light photography, Matthiessen State Park, located in Utica, Illinois, is the place to visit.

As we walked down the path going deeper into the forest it was as if the lights were being turned off all around.

The walk was up and down through winding trails and water flowing along the forest floor.  It was like traveling through a fairy tale surrounded by trees and brush so thick it was like walking in a cave made up of trees.

A Note about My Image Gallery...

Each thumbnail you see here opens into a gallery right on this page. Use the "Next" and "Previous" buttons near the top of each picture to see the next image in line.

To exit the gallery choose the close option in the bottom right corner. You can also click anywhere outside the image to close this window

Traces of man made handy work makes it possible to travel the terrain safely.  Were it not for those wooden steps and bridges, I doubt even an animal could make it up and down.

It was even a task for sunlight to trickle through the thick canopy of this forest.  It's a trek well worth the time to explore mother nature up close and really personal.

I guarantee you'll come away feeling like you just lived the life of Tarzan and Jane for a few glorious seconds.  Read more about Matthiessen State Park here...
