We stopped by for some photos last week. This is a crowded stop and parking is limited. Views were amazing and easy to access. Do not miss this

This area offers a great view of mountains and plain meadows. Living in a busy crowded city such as Chicago usually does not offer such a great opportunity to just look beyond the horizon and to soak in unaltered nature.
