St. Loius
« on: October 05, 2014, 03:17:49 AM »
I'm having to fix most of my pictures for color and contrast problems, so I'm uploading them as they're done.  This may take a while.

The Gateway Arch is 630 feet tall.  My favorite part was taking pictures from odd angles... it's great if you enjoy vertigo.



If you want to worship an orange pile of garbage with a reckless disregard for everything, get on down to Arbys & try our loaded curly fries.

After the arch tour, I went on a short boat ride up and down a small section of the Mississippi.  It's not that spectacular north of the Ohio River. :(

A couple of old buildings.

Just of curiosity, what compelled you to vacation in, of all places, St. Louis?
Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor

Life is short, and suddenly you're not there any more.

I wanted to tour the brewery.

The weather turned lousy that day and went downhill from there, so I didn't make it to Six Flags.  It went from 80s and sunny to rainy 60s and windy so I ended up going to some silly museum instead.  Kind of a letdown.

I remember in 1997 riding the arch egg with two very large women, and a baby that crapped its pants not five seconds after we got situated in the egg.  It was also during the summer.  I'll never forget that smell.

There's a reason I stayed in Illinois.

These people are serious about their baseball.  It's a little scary.





This was that ridiculous museum I visited.

I don't do sports, but that is hilarious.   :lmao:
