I scrounged up a couple of Arch pictures last weekend. Still looking for new inspiration. I need some time off to think. I need a sabbatical. I need to retire.
Ha!, as Virginia would say.
Anyway, this was taken from the park in East St. Louis, Illinois, opposite the monument. The Malcolm Martin memorial overlook is just visible on the horizon. See that cylindrical building to the left of the Arch? Just below and to the left of that. Behind me is the Gateway Geyser, our water jet that blasts a stream as high as the Arch is tall (which is pretty damn high, at least by local standards). More about that soon. By the way, that structure on the right is a big grain elevator. The whole area looks like part of the Midwest prairie.
