Road trip!

I spent most of the last 2 weeks of June on a road trip with an old friend, visiting her friends in St. Louis & Chicago and my sister in Wisconsin. I wasn’t really planning on taking over 1,000 photos, but, you know…that’s how it goes. : ) So I thought I would share a few here with you.

The visual highlight of the trip was a day in Chicago.

The view from the top of the Sears Tower:

I love the buildings in Chicago, especially the older ones. So much character.

Millennium Park is very cool.

We went down to Navy Pier and rode the big ferris wheel:

We saw the Lipizzans perform in Northern Illinois, something I’ve always wanted to do. I didn’t get any really great pictures but I thought this one was funny. Looks like he’s flying into the audience.

We also went to a nature preserve.

We went to see my sister and her baby in Wisconsin:

We went to the museum at the EAA (the experimental aircraft place where her husband works).

In St. Louis we checked out the zoo:

And the Botanic Gardens:

The Botanic Gardens also featured art:

And Henry Shaw’s house:

We also went to the Basilica in St. Louis:

And here are a few shots from the road (out the passenger’s side of course…I don’t shoot while driving) (much).

Fun times! I’ll take a road trip over flying any day.
