St. Louis, Mo

We stayed in East St. Louis, Ill., Just across the Mississippi River at the Casino Queen Campground.

The Gateway Arch was very visible from the campground. It was very easy to cross the river into St. Louis. All we had to do was call security from the campground phone and a shuttle van picked us up and took us to the light rail station.

Since there was a ballgame today, we were able to purchase tickets that were good up to two hours after the end of the game, good deal!

We could see our motorhome from the top of the arch through the haze.

Yes, the trams are that small!

Because the South side tram cars were out of service, we had to wait almost 2 hours before we could go to the top of the arch.

We stayed in St. Louis and had dinner before heading back across the river to the motorhome.
