St. Louis Skyline (363/365)

The first time I ever saw St. Louis, I could have bought it for six million dollars, and it was the mistake of my life that I did not do it.

Mark Twain (1835-1910). Life on the Mississippi. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1883.

TIME:  9:12 AM
PLACE:  Sauget, IL
SUBJECT:  St. Louis skyline

MonkeyBoy had another baseball camp with the Gateway Grizzlies yesterday and today from 9am to noon.  This one was held inside and focused on batting and pitching.  After dropping him off this morning, I stopped on the frontage road leading from the stadium and took this photo of the view of the Arch and skyline with the overcast sky.  I don’t like the grey dreariness of winter – how many more days is it until spring?

In other news, DramaQueen had her hair “low-lighted” today with an “All-spice” color.  She loves how it turned out.

I love St. Louis, so it was so nice to see the arch in your picture. But, I haven't been there in winter.
