The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
I was pretty impressed with this snowfall until the one that hit later in January. The second one shut a bunch of busses down. But the first one sure was pretty!
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
So pretty. I miss this.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
