Gateway Arch in St. Louis
That is the rear of our motorhome at the right edge of the photo. We're in East St. Louis, IL. Directly across the Mississippi River from St. Louis. One of our motorhome internet friends (Many thanks to Hollis) told us about this campground right across the river from the Arch. We camped here two nights so we could attend a CHAP Board meeting via iChat and watch the Penn State/Syracuse football game on our Dish Network via spot beam. It was quite interesting GETTING to this campground! Let's just say our GPS ladies, both Co-Pilot in the motorhome and the GPS gal in the Lexus could not get us here short of turning off the Martin Luther King Bridge when the roadbed was about 50 feet above the cross road below. Nothing like driving the bus and tow car through downtown St. Louis streets at 4:30 on Friday afternoon. To add to the mix, they are doing a lot of construction in downtown.
These are some photos of our motrhome with the Arch in the background. We had visited St. Louis a few years ago in January and had gone up the Arch at that time. It is really a sight to behold.
Tomorrow we will be driving across Missouri and into Kansas with our goal to get across as much of Kansas as possible. See you then!
