We did some traveling over Thanksgiving. Along the way we passed by St. Louis and made a stop at the Gateway Arch and the Museum of Westward Expansion. Little J completed the Junior. Ranger booklet and received a junior ranger pin.
We rode the elevator/tram to the top of the arch. It was a little claustrophobic, but worth the view of St. Louis. The domed building in the picture above is the Old Courthouse where the Dread Scott trials took place. We didn't have time to tour it, but read about it in some of our books.
