Welcome to my blog about my favorite place – Robert Allerton Park in Piatt County, Illinois. (hence the name of this blog: iloveallertonpark). This blog aspires to inform the reader about current trail conditions and highlights of my regular hiking treks about the park. I hope to present historical facts about the park as well as its present state of affairs. Since the park is my place to escape and enjoy nature, I hope you will also feel the escape into the magic, mystery, mystique and majesty of this central Illinois paradise.
I plan to post regularly to the blog. This endeavor, a fruition of many years of research and 36 years of park exploration, remains uncharted and unscripted. As my reading audience develops, feedback and comments will be appreciated, but while I learn the ropes of blogging, your comments will be moderated and thus restricted.
Postings will be arranged alphabetically by category and secondarily by date.
Who is my audience? Anyone who loves this park and who is curious about its design, its history and its continuous evolution.
Thank you for visiting. It is my heartfelt wish that you visit often and, in the future, contribute your impressions and your throughts through my comment board.
