Montana to Chicago drive

Last summer we took a three week road trip to the midwest and back.  While we were traveling, I enjoyed the trip and when we returned I jumped back into work, so finally, now, I will post my pictures and notes in a series of batches.

First of all, the trip was fantastic, so imagine me gushing over every silly little thing that I just have to share like a little old lady.  (Am I my Great Aunt Vera or Aunt Vesta?  I'm not sure yet.)  

Phase one was from Montana to Illinois.  It rained most of the first two days of the drive but it didn't really matter much. Not to us.

The sun shined once we reached Illinois.  Just in time to get out of the car more.

We like The Carleton, Oak Park, IL

Wouldn't it be great to move back to Chicago?  
(long pause)  
Yeah, except in the winter.  
Yeah, seriously. Except in the winter. 
That's when it's hell.
