Pictures from Little Vermilion River, Illinois:

A buddy and I went down the Little Vermilion river last weekend. It was a great little stretch, we WAY underestimated it! There is something we found that might be worth mentioning... a lowhead dam, which could be very dangerous, particularly for someone who isn't expecting it. We portaged around it. Anyway, got some great photos (of the dam too). - Caleb
