St. Louis Gateway Arch

The Gateway Arch was built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States. As our nation's tallest man-made monument, it stands at 630 feet.
We decided to take a ride to the top of the Arch via tram.

This is what we saw when we looked down...

Busch Stadium, Home of the St. Louis Cardinals

The beautiful city of St. Louis.

This was our tram. There were 6 other people in this confined space with no air conditioning.

Dustin and I decided to make a week long vacation in St. Louis after I had scheduled some training for work there. We had no idea what to expect, in fact, we didn't even think of it as a real "vacation" spot so we weren't quick to make many plans. Turns out St. Louis is a great city with lots of U.S. history and fun things to do. We had a great time!
