Illanoise…Land of Lincoln

Hello again!  For those of you complaining that I’m not updating quickly enough you have to know I’m a very busy dog… moving and shaking is what I do!  So you’all need to slow your roll and wait for my updates…This is what I’m doing now…



After the fun of South Dakota we spent some time in Iowa, but no pictures were taken.  Not even at the Sarver family reunion (G’ma’s family of a million).  We stayed at Auntie Joyces and had a great time with family.  Iowa brought many thundershowers and crazy downpours so we hightailed it out of there and headed to Illinois – land of Lincoln (Abe Lincoln for those who don’t know).  Our first stop was a must see Starved State Park.  It was beautiful, but unfortunately it is known for it’s million waterfalls that were completely dried up.  Still nice and a great 10 mile hike in the canyons.

Lucy and I kept up most of the way, but Lucy being 14 got VERY tired and Dad ended up carrying her up and down some of the stairs.  Still, it was not too humid and very scenic…




Hey that’s me at the bottom with glowing eyes!


Me and Lucy at one of our resting spots… Water please…





Chicago…looking at it from the Planetarium









After spending a couple of wonderful days in the middle of the state we had to head up to Chi-town.  OHHHHH that was not a fun drive, but we were able to see Lake Michigan which is huge!  Luckily the days we spent there were wonderful with 70 degree weather and very little humidity.  I could come to enjoy Chicago if it was like that all the time (and about 2 mil less people).

Our time has come to leave the great state of Illinois…on to Indiana!
