On Saturday, I faced my fears and went into the big city! I walked and walked and walked, about 6 miles total. I started at the Navy Pier and walked to Millennium Park from there. I had planned on taking the bus back to the Navy Pier where I was parked, but enjoyed myself so much that I walked back instead. I honestly didn’t realize I had walked so far until I retraced my route on Google Earth.
The Cloud Gate was definitely worth the visit. I have wanted to see Anish Kapoor’s sculpture ever since I first Stumbled Upon an image of it. It was truly fascinating. I was also struck by the beauty of this area of downtown Chicago. Illinois has some of the most beautiful parks! And the buildings are taller than any I have ever seen, incredible works of art themselves.
If given the chance, I could spend weeks exploring the great city of Chicago and never get bored. I was very impressed.
