October in Northern Illinois can be rainy, sunny, chilly or warm; all in the same weekend. From Tennessee, Oklahoma, Southern California, Nevada and Illinois, we all converged on the grounds of Kishauwau on the Vermillion for a family reunion, of sorts. Our families used 7 of the cabins but there is always that one central meeting place where we all would end up for meals and the wonderful campfire starting each afternoon and continuing into the night.
I had forgotten the calming effect of a dark sky filled with stars and the crackling fire that warms you through and through.
