St. Charles CO. Missouri

I am home now.
Here are some photos.
Aw the arch is in sight
We were getting close to St. Charles county. This county is famous for traffic, congestion, shopping fast paced life. It was all farm land when I was a kid

I do believe you had a fun time on your trip. I am fighting a cold also, I guess it's that time of year for the flu bug and the nasty common cold!

The photos bring back memories of my visits to St. Louis. How can one forget the traffic around there?

I'm expecting to see a pic of the Arch next time I stop by. Going up in it is another memory that sticks with you.

I have never been to St. Louis. Thanks for sharing this city. Look like you're having fun.

I am glad you had a good trip. Your photos are nice. Where I grew up used to be farmland. We kids would climb the trees and play for hours in the woods. Nobody worried about us back then. Now, it's all houses and shopping centers.
