September 7, Day 2, St. Charles to St. Louis and back.
Dilemma of the day: What does a 12'-4" bus do when confronted by a 12'-2" bridge


 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 No, no. Not that old chestnut. Open the top vent and check it out.

Photo at right by Kate Kirkendall. thanks Kate, you earned yourself some beads.

Marv's Marvelous experience tells him that many of these heights are reported lower for extra safety.

Of course this is a made up picture. I walked back and took pictures of the bridge, and the bus later, and married them. I love my PhotoImpact.

We crossed the Mississippi into Illinois and came back to get this neat shot of the Gateway Arch.



Among the other exhibits at Museum of Westward Expansion under the arch is this tribute to the builders.
 

Lunch at the Winery of the Little Hills.


At the Lewis and Clark Boathouse and Nature Center in St. Charles we saw the boats built by the members of the Discovery Expedition of St. Charles, and used for a reeactment of the journey in 2004-2006. And Bill congratulates Pierre Cruzatte.


The whole crew at the Lewis and Clark Boathouse.
