Memorial Day Weekend 2008

St. Louis Missouri, home of the world famous Gateway Arch "Meeting of the Waters Fountain"  A Running Man with 17 fountains, symbolic of the streams that empty into the two major rivers. RibFest St.Louis
Award winning BBQ, Music and more. It was here I saw BeatleMania, and Dennis DeYoung. (See Concert Section)
A Robin enjoying the day.
The Ead's Bridge Crossing the Mississippi connecting Illinois and Missouri. The Ead's Bridge was completed in 1874 at a cost of over $10,000,000. The first large bridge to span the Mississippi River, and it was the first to carry railroad tracks. It was the world's first alloy steel bridge; the first to use tubular cord members; and the first to depend entirely upon the use of the cantilever in the building of the superstructure .
The Original Ted Drewes just off Historic Route 66, Since 1929.  O'Connell's Irish Pub, famous for Roast Beef and Hamburgers, this is not a place for Vegetarians. Comparatively new to St. Louis, Gooey Louie has a mouth watering selection of butter Cakes. Good, But a bit pricey.
A creative use for gravel. Traveling further south, had to stop and get a pic of the flying Moose! Love this!  The folks in St. Clair Mo. have a fine sense of humor
Next stop... Meramec Caverns.
