Church Under the Arch

When we were in St. Louis in April we visited the Gateway Arch.  Practically underneath it is the Old Cathedral, site of the oldest Catholic parish west of the Mississippi and where Sacagawea's son was baptized.

 Sorry about the traffic lights in this photo.

Below I'm looking down on the church from the Arch.

Nice view, but I'm afraid of heights! I'll just stay on the ground thank you. Tom The Backroads Ytabeller

Interesting in that it's linked to Sacagawea! I couldn't remember Jean Baptiste's name at first. So much history there.

We drive by St Louis on our way home but have never made a stop. It is on my list!!!

Scared of heights too, but what a magnificent view to behold.

Hi Marcia, I have just recently been reading about the Arch! Your image with the traffic lights actually has something to say. The views are quite lovely.

I also just read your last post about your vegetable garden. My tomatoes are not doing well at all. Definitely some sort of blight, and the high heat does not help. I also have a volunteer tomato growing out of my compost bin, and it is doing fantastic, though I have never so much as watered it. I don't yet know what kind it is. Small tomatoes are just now forming.

Best wishes for a great gardening week! Deb

I find that not only traffic lights get in the way of a nice photo but all those telephone wires.

No doubt the lights can't be helped looking through a windscreen. The church looks to be a very nice one and a good view from the arch
