Jack & Michael Climb The Arch
Here are some pics from when Jack and I got together for a visit in Saint Louis.  The last time we hung out while I was on the road was in Los Angles (click here for pics from that visit).  It doesn't seem possible but that was more than two years earlier!  The most exciting thing we did during our short visit was go to the top  of the Saint Louis Arch.  Here are some pics:

The funky elevator that takes you to the top of the Arch.  Teeny little compartments fit five people.

Jack and I are perfectly happy to be crammed in the odd little elevator.

It is very tiring working at the top of the arch.  Here's proof.
