Anywho, the Arch has been seen and experienced! It was fun, especially the part where we got stuck in the tram. The trams are these tiny little things that most normal people have to crouch into. Since I'm short I was ok. We got in, the doors closed and then...nothing. We waited and then a voice came over the speakers saying that there was a mechanical failure and that the repair department was working on it. We sat there for 3 more minutes and then they opened the doors and let us out. It turns out we were the problem tram...it was tilted. They fixed it and we all got back in. We were with a dating couple that feed each other on the trip up. Awkward anyone? We tried to be nice but they didn't want to talk to us.
We spent a little time at the top enjoying the view. Then we headed back down. This time we were joined by three men in the tram. They didn't want to talk to us either. Meg couldn't understand it...two cute girls that no one wanted to talk too?!?! We're friendly even if we're from New England! Their loss.
I took a few more photos...
|We enjoyed the land of Lincoln...even if it did go on forever!|
|Effingham...the Crossroads of Opportunity. We found it amusing.|
|E. St. Louis & St. Louis are 1 mile apart|
|Then they were 3 miles apart! Did they move while we were driving?|
|We were so happy to get to Missouri!|
