A "found" treasure - I completely forgot about these shots!!
.
.
The world famous "Gateway Arch" framing the Historic Courthouse (where the famous Dred Scott case was 1st tried - and the result of which was the main catalyst for the US Civil War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_War) - the bloodiest war we have ever experienced,

More Americans died in the C. War (1861-65) (630,000 + civilian unknown casualties) than all other wars, engagements, police actions etc - COMBINED. It literally pitted brother against brother and parents against children.

It's awesome...I was so close and yet so far away from seeing this awesome sight...I only saw part of the arch on my way to Kansas....too tired and too afraid to get off my trail via GPS to explore.....I missed out on a lot of awesome sights : (
