September vacation, part 1

We took our vacation this fall to the upper midwest, starting in Chicago and then looping up through Wisconsin, across the UP of Michigan and then down into mainland Michigan.

Chicago: no pictures. We took in a Cubs game a Wrigley, went to the lego store and ate lots of deep dish pizza.

Then we headed up through Wisconsin to the shore of Lake Superior and spent a few days at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. There are 22 islands in the group, we took the ferry to just one of them.
Here's the little town of Bayfield, home to Apostle Islands Lakeshore.
