The IEP’s Chicago Field Trip

We left Upper Iowa University at 6:30 am on Saturday morning, heading east to Chicago. The students slept the entire way. Once we got there, we ate lunch in the park before going to the Art Institute of Chicago. The weather was gorgeous.

The next stop was Willis Tower to watch the sun set over the city. It was long line to get up there, but finally we made it.

After dinner, we walked to Navy Pier and rode the giant Ferris wheel. It was the perfect night for it, and the air was very clear.
