Chicago


This past weekend I had the chance to explore Chicago with Joel. We spent the day people-watching, shopping, eating, and walking. I was saluted by a man dressed in a kilt, we were given free soy-joy bars at a curbside stand, and we were entertained by a certain window-washer 10 floors up.

Knobstone Escarpments

Hiking in Southern Indiana is full of surprises! My brother and I went to the Knobstone Escarpments (http://www.indianaoutfitters.com/Destinations/Knobstone_trail.htm) last June for a lil hiking adventure. The Escarpments have a certain aura about them; the only people living nearby are the Amish, and the trailhead is off the beaten path. We ended up hiking 14 miles, growing more tired at each mile marker! The Escarpments are quite hilly. The terrain was virtually a rollercoaster ride with the rare stretch of flat trail. Some people train on this trail in aspiration of the Appalachian Trail, so we'll see. Maybe I'll tackle the giant next...
