Default Views from top of the Sears Tower

The family and I went to the Chicago boat show yesterday and afterwards went to the top of the Sears Tower to check-out some of the views.

Being that I am scared of heights , I went anyway and snapped some pictures. My three boys were up leaning on the glass saying "Dad check it out", , I am like "GET BACK FROM THE GLASS YOU GUYS". It is a very interesting building and offers a lot of views.

This pic is looking towards the East over Lk Michigan. If you look closely, you will see the Chicago Bears stadium being renovated.

Great shots
I was there less then 2 months after 9/11
Want an sick feeling. Have the thoughts and prayers of those from NY that day and try to live out what YOU would do
Especially once I was down on ground level looking UP!
Sorry to put a bad memory in your mind, but I can almost bet you or one of your family members at least THOUGHT about 9/11 if not even spoke of it

Great pics Will be there Saturday and Sunday
