still having a blast in chicago ....today we went up the sears tower (i still cant' bring myself to call it by its new name the "willis" tower) ... this summer they opened up 'the ledge' . ..3 plexi-glass 'boxes' up on 103rd floor sky deck that stick 4 feet outside the deck. ..plexi glass on all sides including the floor.. ..its like you are stepping out into space 1,353 feet above wacker drive!!!. ...it was just unbelievable. . .catherine, sam and i did it (sydney did not) ....i hope the pics do it justice. ..
here is a pic looking up at the sears tower from street level. .. .
and zooming in on the glass boxes from street level. ..
it was a spectacular, clear day in chicago. ...looking northeast towards the hancock building. ..
and here i am out on 'the ledge' ... looking down 1353 feet between my shoes at the street below me!!!. ..pretty freeky. ...its like you are free floating. ..
and here i am lying out in space. ...this was a favorite picture taking pose most people do there if they are up to it. .LOL. .
and here is sam doing the same. .
and here is me, catherine and sam. .. .out in space...
and here are some pics of the boxes next to ours so you can get the perspective ....
and one more of the street straight down. . .
without question, this was worth every minute of the 2 hour wait in line to get up there. .. it was the coolest thing ever!!!
