Dror Baron: Starved Rock park (5.2002)

Ashvin, Prasad, and I traveled to Starved Rock state park (in Illinois). At first, Dr. George (Ashvin) resisted the temptation of recreation, citing the completion of his distinguished thesis (planned completion: December 2001; actual completion: May 2003) as a holy grail that prevents all forms of entertainment. However, at last he gave in to our persuasions. As you can see below (on the right), he was pleased.

Prasad was also delighted, tree-hugger that he is. These issues are both easily identifiable below.

The park features some nice waterfalls. For example, one can step behind one of the falls, as appears below.
