[Chicago, Oct. 12, 2012]

After boarding our boat, we “sailed” out of the basin and turned right into the Chicago River.

We quickly passed under the Lake Shore Drive drawbridge and entered a “Grand Canyon” of architectural wonderment.

The Trump Tower lies straight ahead.

There was more – much more – to come.

As always, thank you for stopping by this page!

    Years ago, Chicago was considered the ultimate in skyscrapers. New York soon caught up. Now, there are so many cities in the world (like Dubai) with very high and unusual architecture. Good one, Dick!
