Followed the GPS over multiple bridges, across the river, and through a terrifying part of town (where we were sure to be murdered) to a beautiful quiet park with a stunning view of the arch. St. Louis you were good to us. #octoberfest#beer#gatewayarch#stlouis
The iconic St Louis Gateway Arch, an engineering wonder that towers high above the skyline, is now 51 years old. It is the world’s tallest arch weighing 43,220 pounds, and was designed with an allowance of an 18-inch sway and to withstand an earthquake.
Did you know you can visit the top of the Arch, provided you’re willing to sit inside a tiny capsule that travels up on a rickety, angular tram system similar to that of a ferris wheel? … A little frightening, but count us in 😏
The Gateway Arch: tallest Arch in the world and tallest man made monument in the Western Hemisphere. A symbol of the US expansion into the Western States, fitting as I continue my journey from East to West #oregantrail#stlouis#gatewayarch#gatewaytothewest
I made it to the Arch today — so amazing. I didn't go up, because if you know me, you know I don't do unnecessary elevators. St. Louis is one of the most interesting cities I've been to and we had an amazing day site seeing and looking at art. 💯% necessary after 2 days working outside in the heat and humidity. Three out of four Strut's done, one to go, still no pics of the event because I'm terrible 😭
Some more pics from the Gateway Arch. 1. Inside the tiny pod that takes you up inside the arch. No daylight, but you can see the gears as you ride up.
2. Touching the North arm of the arch.
3. Me in the display pod prior to riding up.
4. My sweetie and I on the riverboat with the arch behind us.
Today I made it official, getting the F out of St.louis. Though I'm very thankful for my life in the Lou, all of my family and friends I hope you all can get out eventually! Taking my talents back out west. I'll never forget the good memories and bonds I created while living in the Midwest but it's time to create even more memories and make new bonds! See y'all on Halloween STL. #stlouis#stl#memories#gatewayarch#newbeginnings
