marseilles, il

1marseilles, il

Many of my images come from bicycle rides along the Illinois River. We live just 50 miles from the city of Chicago, and a bicycle ride 25 mores miles west brings me to the riverside city of Marseilles, IL. I have taken the ride many times, but on my most recent trip I discovered an old damn of some sort in a small canal near an abandoned building. I love old, abandoned “stuff”, so the next few images are from my recent “discovery.” Hope you enjoy.

5 mile bridge

my favorite bridge

When I ride my bicycle west I pass over this bridge. Below are links to other images of this bridge that I have posted on this blog. I stop here each time to pray, drink some water, and enjoy the surroundings. It is my favorite bridge.
