Our Visit to Chicago, Illinois, September 2009

In September 2009, we took a train from Holland, Michigan to Chicago, Illinois for a weekend trip.  It was very hazy while we were there, with the kind of sticky and humid weather you would expect in August.  These pictures are from the Downtown area, also known as The Loop, including the park and museum areas.
