Well, I guess this keyboard at home doesn't spell any better than the one I had at work. How about "Frozen Waterfalls." Here's a few more shots.

The rock derives its name from a story of Illiniwek history. A band of Illiniwek was reportedly trapped in the 1760s on the rock by a band of Potawatomi trying to avenge the death of the Ottawa Chief Pontiac. The Illiniwek scrambled to the top of the rock, where the Ottawa and allied Potawatomi laid siege until their enemies had starved to death.
PS. Wikipedia calls them "icefalls"

Yes, that's the story that was told to us by our scout master, (many years ago of course.)
The town of Ottawa IL, just up river from the rock, is the resting place of W.D.Boyce, the founder of Boy Scouts of America. This year marks the 100th anniversary of BSA.
