Alton

Alton is a beautiful stop and when we rented the car it gave us time to visit St. Louis as well.  In one day we packed in the following:  The Arc, The Hill for fine dinning Italian style,The Forest which contains many museums and everything to much to mention and the Zoo.  Here we go again Payton and Karalee.

It was actually very overcast as we picked a rainy day to go do the arch but the pictures turned out good.

WE had someone take our picture and those small windows is where you take your pictures of the view of the city.  It would be absolutely stunning at night.

This is at the bottom of the arch and the planning and engineers who designed the arch.  A massive project and John bought a book with pictures on how it came together.
