Geocache Description:

Located next to one of the most beautiful spots in Illinois, Starved Rock State Park. The Italian bench that is located here was once used for letterboxing hides in Europe. There are only two of these made and the other one is owned by Ozzy Osbourne. Make sure to record the 4 digit code found inside the cache into your Illinois River Road geocaching log book and guide.

Photobucket The Illinois River Road National Scenic Byway stretches 291 miles along the east and west sides of the Illinois River from Ottawa to Havana, and is notable for its natural and historic qualities.
