There are lots of lovely landscapes in the Prairie State but this part of the Midwest isn't exactly the Rockies. So, for those who love clinging to a rockface by their finger-tips or scaling a new peak – it may seem best to venture elsewhere. But the latest Weekly Guide had a few ideas for nearby heights. Keith Bielat is on the board of the Chicago Mountaineering Club and he joined the show with some outdoorsy picks – ones that might save some a plane ticket out west!
Keith picks included: the Reel Rock film tour; Vertical Endeavours, an indoor climbing center in Warrenville; Devils Lake State Park for outdoor climbing; Starved Rock State Park for winter ice-climbing; and Hike & Seek, a family day out at Bemis Woods South.
