Last week we flew to Atlanta and drove back to Wisconsin and thought it would be fun to drive through Chicago at the worst possible time of day. Not really, it just worked out that way. We had a good attitude and enjoyed the sights as we sat, and sat, and sat waiting for traffic to move.
I decided to take some pictures through the car window, but it wasn't easy because there seemed to be cars on both sides of us almost all of the time. We saw this sobering remembrance of September 11 and then stayed silent for a while with our own thoughts of that day.
Here's the Sears Tower and if you look closely you can see what I believe to be the new glass viewing platforms on the 103rd floor. Each of the four platforms extend out from the Tower about four feet. I so want to experience this. I think there's something similar at the Grand Canyon.
Wisconsin, left 3 lanes. Easier said than done when you're in the far right lane.
Not crazy about driving through any tunnel and especially not one with four lanes of cars all driving over the speed limit.
We enjoyed the two hours that it took us to go twenty miles, but were very happy to see this sign and be on our way home. Not that we don't love St. Louis!
