Dear BPL community,
My friends and are trying to plan a quick jaunt away from Chicago to enjoy a little backcountry and a little topography. We were thinking about going to Mammoth Cave National Park and staying away from the popular areas. Looking at the map, I was thinking I could take them bushwhacking down to the Green River following drainages and using a map. Educational and fun! But maybe spring has already advanced too far to allow us to do that easily...
Can y'all suggest alternative locations? We will will have 2 1/2 days at the most to get to, enjoy, and return from our location, so the closer to Chicago the better.
I hope all is well with everyone,
