145:365 Heading Out

It's that time of year in Chicagoland - the sailboats head from dry dock out to the harbors. To do that, many of them have to chug along the main branch of the Chicago River and head out to Lake Michigan. At this time of year, on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m., (and I think on Saturdays, too), the bridges open one after another so the boats with masts too tall to fit under can get out to the harbor.

This is the north end of the LaSalle Street Bridge that has raised up to let the ships pass on their way.
