This January, my wife and I decided to drive up to Illinois to see my Grandmother for her 96 birthday. Since we were heading up from Georgia to central Illinois we decided to include some stops along the way. The first night we stopped in St. Louis on the way up and stayed at the Hyatt Regency right by the arch. This was my first time staying in St Louis and since I only had one night there I got right to taking pictures of the arch. The nice part about visiting in January is that I was the only one motivated enough (you can read that stupid enough) to go photograph the Arch in 6 degree weather. As you walk around the park there are a dozen different vantage points to view and photograph the Arch.
The third picture is the standard “inside the arch” picture. I lined up on the north side of the Arch and snapped the picture back towards the south end.
