Gateway Arch (The)

Does it make me sound like a stupid tourist if I go on and on about how I didn't realize the St. Louis Arch was as big as it is? Probably. So I'll minimize my comments on the subject, and just say - WOW! This thing is HUGE!

The arch is located right along the Mississippi, and in a national park. It's a pretty spot, and there are walkways through a park-like area on either side.

We parked our car along the river, and crossed the street to climb the stairs up to the Arch's base. Unfortunately, the inside was closed - the museum is open from 9am-6pm, and rides to the top run from 9:30am-5:15pm.

Still, the view of the river is pretty, and the structure itself is impressive.
