We left Cleveland and made very good time. So we decided not to stop in South
Bend and continued on to Joliet, IL. Mom picked out a campground from
Woodalls, The Empress Casino RV Park. It was part of a Casino. We were afraid
to go in and gamble. (Did not want to loose the motorhome before reaching Alaska!)
The satellite TV worked great at this campground. (They had minimum trees.)
We continued on to Spring Green, WI. Where we toured "The House on the Rock." Uncle Elmer highly recommended this when we were passing by in 2002, but we ended up looking for the wrong place. We were looking for a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Although Wright's museum is in the area, he had nothing to do with the House on the Rock. The house was designed and built by Alex Jordan. It is built atop and into a 60 foot chimney of rock on top of a mountain.
Like Uncle Elmer, we highly recommend this to anyone passing in this area. It is a very interesting all day tour. It is a very unique house and there are many other buildings which contain items which he collected or designed.
Alex Jordan was a sculpture who used this house as a place to get away from everyone and work on his art.
