September 23, 2011: Chicago Heights, Il to Michigan City, IN: (55 miles)

Today was not photogenic! We basically rode through towns to catch a Bike Trail, Cal would then ride the trail, while I went to the next town to meet him, we would go on streets to the next Bike Trail, he would ride, etc.  He rode on the Glennwood trail, Oak Savannah Trail, and the Prairie Duneland Trail.  All of the trails were paved, level, and tree lined. Cal made very good time on the ride today. 

Oak Savannah Trail
My biggest challenge was to find where the trails ended.  I had more luck than sense at times!  - as my maps are not the most detailed – frustrating to me as a map reader! We do not have a GPS in the vehicle I am driving. However all went very well today.

The weather was lovely again today, but this evening the temperatures have dipped. We have turned on the heat in the motel room tonight!  However I’m still not ready to put my sandals away!! 

We stopped this afternoon at a main highway that goes toward Michigan City, IN, so we are in a motel on the south side of Michigan City tonight.
