Illinois to Arkansas

Main Destination:  Petit Jean State, Arkansas

Starting Point:  Peoria, IL

This is a pretty easy trip and Petit Jean State Park is by all means worth the visit.  Roaring
River is a great stop on the way back home if you are interested in trout fishing or some short hiking.  Cassville, Missouri also has a nice little downtown area with trolley’s that run back and forth in town.  We actually didn’t leave out until Saturday morning, because the weather was so bad Friday night, but our original plan was to leave out Friday afternoon.  That being said, we only ended staying at Lake Wappapello the one night.  Coincidentally, the weather turn for the worse that evening as well and we ended up spending a good part of the night in the bathhouse under a tornado warning.
