The Arch Grounds in St. Louis is under massive redevelopment. They are putting a lid over I-70 to make a park all the way from the river to the Old courthouse. I agonized for weeks over the time it was going to take to get into the arch, but when we got there we were early on all our times so it was a wonderful day.

A statue in the riverfront park in St. Charles. Three days from now you will see the same statue except for one detail. the sculptor made three of these with slight differences. I have not seen the third.
