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.
