Travels With Minnie: The Gateway to the West

We passed through St. Louis today on our westward journey. The Gateway Arch, the world’s tallest arch and the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere, stood out against a clear blue sky.

Completed in 1967 and officially dedicated to the American people, it stands as a monument to our country’s westward expansion – a symbol of the American spirit.

    We went up in the arch a few years ago. Overall we really enjoyed St. Louis-lots of fun things to do there.
