Cleveland to Chicago

Saturday I drove from Cleveland to Chicago, the farthest distance (approx. 360mi) in one day up to that point.

Just outside Cleveland, I drove in to Oberlin, OH and took a walk around Oberlin College. Oberlin was the first college to admit men and women of all races.

It was a beautiful morning, and a beautiful campus.

In Toledo, OH, my trip odometer hit 1000 miles!

Soon after Toledo, I was entering Indiana.

I passed through the town of Lagrange, IN, another town named after a mathematician [OK, maybe not]. There were many Amish buggies traveling along the side of the road here.

I stopped for a walk and picnic supper at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Entering Illinois and the city of Chicago, there were no welcome signs like every other state had. This was the closest I could find:

  1. There are 20 or so towns called La Grange in the US. They are not named after the mathematicians, but the agricultural organization:
