The sunrise brought a weather surprise that made the day much better than we expected…And made the anticipated “birdwatching” that evening look better than we had hoped.
From the hotel room this is what greeted me when I rolled out of bed…
A cool front was moving through the area as I watched that morning. The day promised to be pleasantly warm and not as uncomfortably hot as it had been all week.
After a late breakfast, we wandered across the Interstate behind the hotel to enjoy the park surrounding the Arch. Of course there were photo opportunities to be had.
Taken from the middle of the intersection, the photo above just had to be snapped.
Then, once we were across the street, another shot presented of the same steeple…
We then wandered into the park and headed for the Arch itself.
I must admit standing at the base of the Arch left you with a feeling of smallness…Quite impressive.
Blue skies and blue steel…Man and nature…History and today…It all comes together at this point.
Tomorrow we will go “Birdwatching”
