After exploring the flooded fields adjacent to Pleasant Hill Road in their canoe, A.J. Kimble, a senior from Jerseyville studying marketing, and Jace Munselle, a senior from Fairfield studying finance and accounting, carry the canoe back to their car April 30 in Carbondale. “This is usually the road I take to Giant City,” Munselle said. “Yesterday I was just driving around and saw it was flooded and blocked off. I haven’t been canoeing in a while so we decided to go.” The pair said they canoed for about two miles in the surrounding fields. “These are some of the most beautiful places to canoe,” Kimble said. “We saw a baby owl,” Munselle added.

Jack Gebert, 24, of Crystal Lake, gazes up at the light spilling through a shaft inside the famous 55-foot-wide riverside cave on March 17 at Cave-In-Rock State Park by the Ohio River. Gebert traveled to the cave with his 20-year-old brother, Daniel, while the two were on a three-day camping trip in the Shawnee National Forest. It was the brothers’ first time at the state park. “This place is really impressive,” Gebert said. “Obviously, there are pictures on the internet of the cave, but actually being in it is just so awesome.”

Marion Sai, of Carbondale, encourages her 7-month-old son, Matine, as he walks around the table with help from Kathryn Neely, of Carbondale, on March 6 during an afternoon of sign-making at Gaia House in preparation for the “A Day Without a Woman” rally in Carbondale. “Civic engagement is a really powerful tool to speak truth to power,” Sai said. “I hope that by being exposed to this, [Matine] can be a part of a really positive, proactive group of people. I think his first words will probably be, ‘This is what democracy looks like.’”
