Fort Defiance Park (formerly a State Park), Cairo IL

Between bridges eastbound on US60 at the crossing of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers one briefly touches down in Illinois in the wye between the rivers. At this confluence is the now abandoned Ft Defiance park. I thought I might spend the night here but after exploring the park for a while and getting a few pictures of this sad spot I sensed the vibe wasn't great and chickened out. Too bad, this would be a pleasant park to spend a day or two.
