Default Re: 61 : 7 March 2011 - Arches


At the Gateway Arch in 2003.


The St. Louis Gateway Arch is not only 630 feet high, it's also 630 feet across at the bottom. The way the legs actually taper toward the top adds to the illusion that it's taller than it is.

This pic was taken with a Sony Mavica CD camera, 2.1 megapixel. That's why it's a grainy pic.
