The Gateway Arch - St Louis Missouri

This morning, before it got too hot we walked to the Gateway Arch from our motel.
The arch dominates the skyline of St Louis and represents the Gateway To The West as it was from here that many of the early settlers left for California. It is very high - over 600 feet and you travel to the top in a tiny pod - like elevator. Not for anyone who is claustrophobic or scared of heights!

It was a misty, hot humid day so the photos are not that clear I'm afraid.

You can see the shadow of the arch on this one.

The Cardinals baseball stadium.

Me at the top!
