I got to work yesterday to discover that we had a field trip to the Sears Tower. We packed the kids and ourselves in a school bus and went downtown.
It was a little hazy yesterday, but the view was still magnificent. This is the view north. The Chicago River North Branch ambles north and west, passing about a block from our home.
If you look west you can see...
...the United Center, where the Black Hawks and Bulls play.
This is the view to the south.
To the southwest.
To the northeast. When I was a kid, the Prudential Building, the building in the center of the picture with the blue sign, was the tallest building in Chicago. There was almost nothing between the Prudential Building and Navy Pier, which you can see in the background.
Yes, that's a steeple on top of a skyscraper.
You can see the Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium in this one.
This is Millenium Park.
The Northwest Side, where Kim, the kids and I live.
