Pere Marquette Lodge

On Sunday I drove up what is known as the Great River Road from St. Louis to Pere Marquette Lodge. The lodge was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps from 1933-1939. This is a guest cabin on the grounds.

The lodge its self is a large stone and log structure with guest room, restaurant and huge gathering area. It is a very impressive facility overlooking the Illinois River.
