Chicago, Chicago, CHIAGOO. I don't know why but each time I think of Chicago, ChiaGoo pops into my mind. Do you think subliminally I am trying to tell myself something? Like, I really need to start and account with ChiaGoo. Who knows!
Back to the trip though. The drive up was fairly uneventful but I did take that opportunity to work on my commando style of picture taking from the truck as I'm driving down the interstate. Basically, with out looking, I hold my camera in the direction of the interesting thing and click away hoping against common sense that maybe, just maybe one shot out of 50 will turn out even remotely viewable.
|It is hard to see in the photo but the arrow is pointing to a huge peace sign on the barn roof. I have a feeling this is one of those farms I would enjoy driving up to just knock on the door and say hello.|
|Approaching Indianapolis heading to ChiaGoo Land.|
|The pictures really do not capture the immense size of the wind harvesters. They are huge monoliths set in offset rows. The arms are gracefully turned with the intense wind this area of Indiana has. A truly unique show.|
|Hard to read but basically, this is the sign that says I-65 ends.|
|What the previous sign failed to mention was that I-65 ended on a narrow freaking mile long bridge with absolutely NO shoulder and a terrible drop to your death if you should say accidentally drive through the barrier and over the edge.|
|The First toll booth was only $2. The next sign which I failed to get a picture of was 'The Mayor of Chicago Welcomes You'.|
|Remember when I said the Mayor of Chicago greeted me, well he took it back less than a mile down the road with a Toll fee of $10. What a warm welcome to ChiaGoo Land.|
|I have no idea what these signs meant, but they were a bit of color in the drab existence of rush hour traffic on the Chicago Skyway.|
|I think if they can charge me $10 to drive through ChiaGoo Land the least they can do is patch the holes showing exposed rebar under the bridges.|
