Mouth of the Kankakee River

Mouth of the Kankakee River

Grundy County

This photograph was taken from the Kankakee River looking northward toward its mouth. At this location, about 40 miles southwest of Chicago, the Kankakee River and the Des Plaines River join to form the Illinois River. The Kankakee Bluffs can be seen in the background. The Illinois and Michigan Canal runs along the base of the bluffs.
