Chicago: Skydeck

Continuing with highlights from when Alexis was in town, we went into Chicago for the weekend before she left. We got lots of good photos of Chicago from the Skydeck of Willis (formerly Sears) Tower, which is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere (8th tallest in the world) at 1,450 ft and 110 stories. The view extends up to 50 miles. We stood on "the Ledge", which extends 4.3 ft out from the building on the 103rd floor (1,353 ft), so we could also see directly below. There are also historical/cultural exhibits on the 103rd floor.
