view from on top of the arch
pete and eric admire the skyline
claustrophobic in a 50 year old elevator
we passed under the arch, the symbol of the west

Originally founded by the french in the early 1600′s. The team has arrived into the historic and thriving metropolis of St. Louis. At 12:30 CST they officially crossed under the arch to symbolize the gateway into the next half of this broad spanning continent. After a brief visit down route 66 and a stop to pay homage to the pioneers Lewis and Clark, the team was seen in a borrowed red Nissan Xterra tearing up the city on that fine autumn afternoon.
