The lake was looking a lot like the Atlantic or the Pacific today. Waves as high as 22 feet were reported in Chicago. I didn't see any that big at Fort Sheridan.
Although the temperature was in the mid-40s, the air had a wintery bite to it.
The view from a 70 foot high bluff. As for Fort Sheridan, it was a US Army base from 1887 until 1993. It was named for General Phil Sheridan.
