The first time I ever went to the Arch, back in October 2011, I remember being positively baffled at how massive it was up close! I couldn't even get the entire Arch in the frame of my camera! I also didn't know that you could go down under the Arch to the shops, museum, and so on, so that was a VERY cool surprise. Unfortunately I spent so much time looking around at the museum that I ran out of time to ride to the top! Luckily, a couple years later when my fiance and I spent a day in St. Louis, we rode in that tiny, tiny pod and got to see the amazing view from the very top of this Arch. So awesome!
