April 20, 2009 St. Louis, MO Gateway Arch

We went to the Gateway Arch today and rode the tram up to the very top, 630 feet over St. Louis. Before crossing the Mississippi to the Arch, we took photographs across the river from behind the Casino Queen Hotel and Campground. Very impressive - the massive Gateway Arch and the Mighty Mississippi in one shot. The intellect of man and the power of God all in depicted in one shot. The view from the top is awesome. Busch Stadium and all of St. Louis and East St.Louis below. We had taken photos of the Arch from our Montana and today we took photos of our Montana from the top of the Arch. My favorite shot is one showing the Arch through the leafless trees, the green grass and a still pond. The clouds in the sunset was a perfect way to say "Good night" to St. Louis. For scientific purposes only, of course, we had to go to Ted Drewes Frozen Custard stand one more time to see if it was as popular on a cold clear evening as it was last night on a cold, windy and rainy evening. It was! (and, by the way, it was just as delicious) Tomorrow we travel to Columbia, MO for two nights. From there, we will go to Boonseville,MO where the Budweiser Clydesdale horses are sent to breed.
