June 25, 2016 – Indianapolis, IN to Joliet, IL

It was a pretty uneventful day as we drove through farm … mostly corn …

country with the requisite number of barns

a wind farm spread over many miles and which must have consisted of close to 1,000 wind turbines,

and that “old tattooed lady.”


Then, there were more water towers …

Debbie again spied several deer in cornfields as we were zooming by at highway speeds.  How she even saw them, let alone was able to photograph any is amazing.

We’re sure many people would find miles and miles driving across this, or any other part of the country, would find the scenery boring.  However, if you stay alert and look for interesting subjects, the country opens up into a never-ending panorama of sights!

Just after crossing from Indiana into Illinois, a motorhome traveling east was in a collision causing a back-up for nearly10 miles.  We were thankful we were not involved and traveling west.  However, shortly thereafter, the traffic slowed to a halt.  Seems some poor soul went off the road.

Our campground in Joliet was amazing and we had a great view of the lake right outside our windshield!
