Legend of the Piasa

If you have the Weird Illinois book, you will know what I'm talking about. Apparently this creature was drawn on a rock by the Indians over a hundred years ago. The cave that's under the painting is enormous.

Alton is so dead on a Sunday. We had a hard time finding a brunch place. Everything seemed to be closed, except churches <-- the only happening place in town.
I bought a couple of necklaces from this Riverbend Treasure and was told that they were closing their store as well. Business was tough and they decided to go Ebay.
