This was the first view of the arch as we were coming down I-55 towards St. Louis. That green area in the picture is a landfill on the Illinois side of the river.
This is what the little cars in the tram look like to ride to the top of the arch. There are seats for five people in that little car. You get to experience several phobias at the same time, fear of small spaces, fear of heights, etc.
For some reason blogger isn't working right, having trouble loading pictures without them being distorted. May have to load the pictures in the confuser again. The top picture is a little distorted along the left edge, but is good enough for now.
