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.

Green hiking trails found at Matthiessen State Park in Illinois

The weather sure has been interesting this spring in Illinois. On Thursday morning it looked more like a monsoon in Asia than a spring storm in Illinois. The Edens Expressway was closed as were a lot of other main arteries as rivers and creeks flooded. If April showers bring May flowers then what will the weather this year bring? I know one thing for sure, we will soon see a lot of green hiking trails like this one in Matthiessen State Park in central Illinois.

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