Southern Illinois provides a wide selection of outdoor activities for residents to partake in during the summer months. On Thursday, August 6 I traveled to Ferne Clyffe outside of Goreville, Illinois for a hike at the Round Bluff Nature Preserve.

The playlist below features a set of videos I put together for a group project that I am helping with for an online class. The class is based around screenwriting, and I wanted to connect my group members with the nature of Southern Illinois, in addition to building ideas for our weekly projects.

These videos have inspired me to produce more hiking videos based in Southern Illinois, and in other scenic parts of the world. This collection of videos was filmed on my iPad, and with low film quality. Future hiking tour videos will be recorded at 1080 px.

If you have screenwriting experience, and want to add to the conversation, just add a comment on the YouTube watch page.

Ferne Clyffe showcases limestone bluffs, seasonal waterfalls, fishing areas, caves and hiking trails for guests to experience.
