Michigan City, IN & Traverse City, MI

We're in the American midwest again, hitting Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Took some pictures while we were in Michigan City and Traverse City. We stopped at Michigan City because we were having radiator trouble. We saw a train track in the middle of the road - I thought it must've been decommissioned. Turns out I was wrong. The train runs right down the middle of the street - a full-sized passenger train!

Finally arrived in Traverse City, which sits on Lake Michigan. It looks like a swinging place in the summer, but for us it was just cold. I've never been to the Great Lakes in winter, so it was pretty cool seeing so much of Lake Michigan covered in ice.
