Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Wildcat Canyon Starved Rock

Starved Rock State Park Wildcat Canyon

Sometimes you do not have to put on a backpack and travel across the world to see something cool. In the winter in Illinois at Starved Rock State Park there are a series of canyons which produce frozen waterfalls when conditions are ripe. When the waterfalls crash over the canyons and then it gets cold, the waterfalls freeze producing awesome ice formations spilling over the canyon. The park actually has a hotline for waterfall and icicle conditions: 815-667-4726.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
