I found this old travel brochure of a State Park near Ithaca, N.Y. at a vintage store in Woodstock.
I loved the black and white photographs of nature inside.
It reminded me of my own childhood exploration of the Starved Rock State Park on the Illinois River outside of Peru, Illinois.
Every state park seems to have places named after the Devil, and this is a picture of Lucifer Falls in Enfield.
I vaguely recall that Starved Rock had a Devil's Playground, or something like that. It always felt very Nathaniel Hawthorne to me in regards to this view of the satanic nature of the nature surrounding us (and within us)!
I hope we get to visit there one day and compare then to now. Hopefully not much has changed. In the meantime we can enjoy the place vicariously through these vernacular images.
