My Trip to the Top of the Arch

On our way to Kansas a week ago, Dave and I stopped in St. Louis to take a trip to the top of the arch. I had never been to St. Louis (or Missouri for that matter) and Dave hadn't been to the arch since he was a child, so we thought it would be fun. It's starting to seem a little weird (or funny) that everywhere we travel we like to go vertical. In Italy we went to the top of every single church and bell tower we saw. In Switzerland we went to the top of the mountains. In NYC, we went to the top of the Empire State Building. Etc., etc., etc.

Anyway, here's some pictures of our trip...

The door to the "pod."


Inside the pod.

Needless to say, I did not enjoy the ride.


We made it to the top!!!


It's pretty scary that you can see the bottom of the structure from the top.


Jumping for joy that I'm back down on the ground.
