For 10 days, I am traveling through middle America for work as well as visiting with some relatives. My dad came along for the journey and we had a chance to cruise around Chicago proper after I finished with my work functions.
We took a trip to the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) and took a 60 second elevator ride to the 103rd floor. As we walked around the SkyDeck we got a 360 degree view of the Chicago area which was fantastic.
Then, we had a chance to step out on to “The Ledge“…
I have to admit that it is a little disconcerting to think that some plexiglass will hold you high above the ground, but it is true. As I gingerly stepped out on to the glass, it was breath-taking – not because I was going to faint – but because the view was spectacular.
The second and third times were much easier than the first. Caution: If you get vertigo easily, this is probably not the activity for you!
Question: Would you step out on “The Ledge”? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
