The walk home from work, across Eads bridge, over the Mississippi river, and back to the East side. :)

I had thought about that, but then decided to put it with the night shots.

Re: Gateway Arch - Saint Louis

The tram cars parked in the maintenance area just below the leg and just above the visitor boarding station. I lost about 10 pounds of weight from spending 4 weeks of running up and down those stairs every morning. :) Cell phone camera (It's rather dark in this area, and the camera couldn't cope. :(...

Re: Gateway Arch - Saint Louis

So, it's possible to get inside and to the top too...the arch has such a small section in some segments that visually it makes it hard to believe that. I agree that it's hard to believe! However, the Arch is much bigger than it appears to be in the photos. The top of the Arch can easily fit 40 peop...

Re: Gateway Arch - Saint Louis

Fascinating. We used a photo taken by Richard Kilpatrick when he visited in the 1990s... I hope he enjoyed his visit. There's a lot to see in the St. Louis area but it all seems to be at/or just beyond the perimeter of the city, which means a person has to hunt for all of it. ...remember it was a 6...

Re: Gateway Arch - Saint Louis

In the first photo, is the Arch without cladding? The cladding is there. The Arch was built in block sections (like Legos) with its stainless steel skin already applied to each piece. The appearance of the stainless steel skin varies depending on the weather, angle of the sun, and time of day. On c...

View of the Arch and the old entrances at the bottom of the legs. FYI: The doorways at the legs are now "exit only".

Gateway Arch - Saint Louis

Hi All, Today, 3 July, is the grand opening for the new renovations at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. So I thought I'd share some photos from past and present. Earlier this Spring, I was on the job hunt and ran across a Summer job vacancy at the Arch. Even though it was only a temp job and a bit out...

I like it too. The more I look at it, the more interesting it becomes, with all of the various patterns and textures.
