Chicago, Chicago

You’re my kind of town – NOT

Leaving Wisconsin, the sum total of our drive through Illinois consisted of navigating the outskirts of Chicago, which only served to confirm for me that I’m NOT a city gal.

The skyline was interesting, though:437


Successfully getting through Chicago, we went around a corner, and suddenly we were in


We choose a non-interstate route, that proved to be much more relaxing driving, and what we noticed mostly were the acres and acres and endless acres of ……………..corn446.Corn fields

Not terribly exciting, and other than a very pleasant stay at a campground, and a quick visit to a quilt shop (will cover the quilt shopping in a separate post at another time), this just about sums up our visit to Indiana.  This area of Indiana is supposedly Amish country, but we saw little concrete evidence of Amish people other than a few names here and there like Stoltfusz and Yoder.

It was in Ohio that we had our adventure – coming up!

Blessings, Peg


  1. Oh how fun. My niece lives in Indianapolis so I've been there a little .. not much. You make traveling sound so much fun. We went through Chicago once .. I didn't like it much either.

  2. Remember running through corn fields? I do. Now, though, I'd be picking my way through on high alert for spiders.
