Energy Walk

On a Friday afternoon we went out to walk along the Centennial Trail that takes you down to the tugboat harbor on the Sanitary and Ship Canal, and then further to the coal-fired power plant and Citgo refinery that can be seen from Romeo Rd. Barges, railroads and pipelines make these things possible: the huge Exxon-Mobile refinery is just a few miles further west, as is the pipeline junction of Manhattan, IL. Photos of the walk appear below, plus a few details about the plant and refinery if you click the map markers.
