This spring I had to work in St Louis. It was a quickie in, work 15 hrs and I was on the plane home by 7:00 AM so I really never saw the light of day, nevertheless more than just a glimpse of the Arch.
Over the last 2 weeks I have been working out of town in Indianapolis and St Louis.
The work went really smooth and we were able to shave 2 full shifts off the job.
That allowed me to fly home on Wednesday. I woke up a bit early so I decided to swing by the Gateway Arch on the way to the airport.
It was totally different than I expected. It was in the middle of a Beautiful green park, no buildings or signs, just the Arch standing majestic in the middle overlooking the river.
I wish I would have had time to ride to the top and also watch the history video but I had to be at the airport by 11:00.
I did get to walk thru the underground museum built under the Arch. The entrance is subsurface and you have to go thru a metal detector to enter.
I will prolly be heading back next spring so I hope to take a ride to the top.
Have any of you ever been there?
