On my ever continuing quest to bike from Chicago to Milwaukee (in segments) I rode this weekend from Fort Sheridan to Waukegan. Towns along the way included Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Great Lakes Naval Base, North Chicago and finally Waukegan. Waukegan and Lake Forest couldn't have been in sharper contrast. While Lake Forest has long been home to the super wealthy, Waukegan, along with North Chicago are classic rust belt cities having fallen on hard times.

Here's the photos:
