Chicago to Madison - June 25, 2013

Our ride from Chicago to Madison via the Milwaukee suburbs. We took Illinois 19 East to Lake Shore Drive and US 41. US 41 North until it joins I-94 West. I-94 West to I-894 around Milwaukee, then back on I-94 West to Madison. In the Madison area, we took I-90 East/I-39 South to US 12 and US 18 West to our hotel. After checking in, we took US 51 to Wisconsin 30 to US 151 into town, then US 151 back down to the Beltline Highway to get to the hotel again.

Gas is significantly more expensive in Chicago than anywhere else on the trip so far.

The trees could use a little trim around this sign. [Crop/Zoom: 255x1042]

It was unclear if this refers to a blind person living in the area or a blind turn, or something else. [Crop/Zoom: 582x513]

I think this was the first gas price I've seen in person.

Now on I-94, we will stick with that, as US 41 was even slower than expected. [Crop/Zoom: 2201x877]

I kept this picture because of the interesting town name: alternate o's and consonants 5 times. [Crop/Zoom: 1246x802]
