St. Louis, Missouri

We arrived mid afternoon. The ride through Tennessee, Kentucky and Illinois was great. The landscape was terrific, especially in Kentucky.

We will be going up in the Arch EARLY tomorrow morning.  The waiting line this afternoon was 90 minutes and the round trip after that in the elevator-tram that runs up the Arch was an additional 60 minutes.

The guide told us that the tourists do not start coming until 10:00 in the morning, so if get there between 8:00 and 8:30 we can just walk in with not wait. We will be up and back within a half hour.

The Arch is from the park on the edge of the Mississippi River
