This is the Kaskaskia Canyon waterfall or whats left of it i suppose. As you can see it is pretty dried up for the summer. Their has not been much rain lately so the only water that is left is the small pool below the falls. (not seen in this picture)
I recently went camping at Starved Rock State Park hoping to get some waterfall photos fully expecting them to be dried up (which of course most of them were) but i managed to get a few good photos out of the trip. The morning we were leaving there was a pretty nasty storm rolling in with very heavy rain and intense lightning unfortunately we had to get home so we missed out on some raging waterfalls i imagine… :(

Below is a photo taken January 24th 2010 when the temperature was in the upper 30s and most of the snow was melting away.
