Nearly a year after moving to St. Louis, and B and I finally made our way downtown to pay homage to the famous Gateway Arch. Like in most major cities, parking in the downtown area is horrible, so B and I left our car at a paid garage and strolled down the tree-lined path that led to the stainless steel monument. We decided to skip the tour (and all the annoyingly loud tweens) and took some snaps before heading down to walk by the river.
We were hoping to catch a boat tour, but we somehow chose the day and time when tours weren't happening. It was a nice enough day, though, so we just ambled on along the shore a bit.
When it got too muggy for
us me to be outdoors, B and I made our way to the Old Courthouse across the street from the Arch. This ceiling, you guys. It's even prettier in person.
The Old Courthouse houses a lot of different exhibits, including a recreation of how the courtroom looked during the Dred Scott trials (the Old Courthouse is where the first three trials were held). However, it seems that the only pictures I took were of those wings that were under construction.
After a couple of hours exploring the Old Courthouse, B and I headed out for some sunshine and grub, but not before snapping this.
