Shawnee National Forest and Cache River in Southernmost Illinois
Finally I've finished the long, wordy story in several posts of my May 2013 trip to Shawnee National Forest and the Cache River, starting here. Next I'll tackle the July trip to the Upper Midwest, but I'm going to scale it way back, luckily for anyone who happens to come across these posts.
