Last month (July 2010), I was getting antsy, and decided I just could not wait another second to get some new skylines in my life. So I found a friend, packed up the car, and drove out to Chicago, hitting tons of cities in what turned into a gigantic 5+ day loop. Let's check it out!

I must admit, I am liking the idea of a soundtrack to go with the pictures. Here's a good song for it: http://wobblesauce.com/track/live-and-let-glory If you like it, I would also recommend song #4, and the entire other album.

First, a cursory shot of the city I will be leaving behind for a bit... Boston.

Super Awesome Midwest Roadtrip

These next few are taken right outside Syracuse, NY



Don't forget to buckle up!



Gas was expensive there. Don't worry, showing gas stations will not become a trend.

We veered off 90 into Rochester NY for a few. First time I have ever been there! (my first new city out of 7) We didn't stop and I didn't get great pics, so here's a couple and we are moving on.

We rolled into Buffalo around midnight. It was my first time in the city. I had a bad (recovering) knee so couldn't walk far, but we grabbed some decent pictures and had a good time tooling around.

Next up, a detour to Niagara Falls!

Cool bridge on the way



We stayed on the American Falls side





This was taken about 1:30 am

Couple shots of the very built up Canadian side across the river







Driving back, passing the cool bridge on our way back through Buffalo and then continuing West

It's 4 am and I haven't slept but I finally made it to the Midwest! This is the first and most likely, last picture of myself I will ever post on this site.

Terminal Tower, when built it was the tallest building outside NYC and the 2nd tallest in the world.
