First Trip to the Arch

Today we went to the arch for the first time with Kyle and Ian.




In line on our way to the elevators


Kyle pulls the handle for the boat horn with some help from Mark Twain


Who weighs more?


Outside the elevators


Inside the tiny, egg-shaped elevator car. Ian fits in here a lot better than I do



630 feet down


A panorama of the east side of the Mississippi


Downtown St. Louis



Heading back down. At this point Ian told me he wanted to take the stairs all the way to the bottom (we took the elevator).


Hurley



Someone throw a stick!


Proof that Hurley can run on water if he wants that stick badly enough




CAUTION: STAND BACK WHEN THIS HAPPENS


Why is everybody laughing at me?


Clean, dry and algae-free
