Overseeing this area is a gathering of Grandmothers. They are a very tall, strong, welcoming presence. Children hiking through the area love to climb up into their many little alcoves, having great fun playing hide and seek.
The Grandmothers are all in good spirits, and are quite chatty. They want everyone passing through here to be a happy part of the family.
The grandmothers are part of a charming little canyon at Garden of the Gods, Shawnee National Forest, Illinois. You can see more images of the canyon HERE
