Located in Southern Illinois, this lake is a treasure to the Shawnee Hills. This lake is near the Shawnee National forest and is part of the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge.
About Gary Marks
Explore - Photograph - Live. Three words that describe my love of nature. These photos and articles are my small attempt to bring to others the great "undiscovered" beauty of Southern Illinois and beyond. It is my hope that you will view this website and leave with a better understanding of the area and will motivate you to get outside where ever you live and explore your own backyard.
