Foot Steps in the Snow by barnsis

This is the stairway on the south end of the Gateway Arch located on the Mississippi river front in St. Louis Missouri. The stairway goes up to a sidewalk that circles around in the Arch park grounds until it comes to a matching set of stairs on the north end of the arch.

    Looks like the footsteps branch off in three directions. I would like to walked up those stairs someday. Would like to view the city while in the arch.

  • They go from a normal wide sidewalk at the bottom to one as wide as the top steps that then narrow down to a normal wide sidewalk again. I can see no reason for the change in width as they go up except for architectural view. There are if I remember over 60 steps on these.
    !0 or 12 dollars gets you a ride to the top in an elevator and then you can stay in the observation area as long as you like. Usually around an hour wait to go up.

    Wow!! What a cool shot…I love the angle to begin with but the footprints in the snow….someone needs to shovel those stairs!!! As for my images….I quit backin them up … instead I subscribed to and for a small amount, they back up my entire harddrive both on my computer and offsite. Seemed like a good deal to me!! Thanks for this photo, Byron…you did a great job!!!

    Thank you Barb, there is hardly anyone around this time of the year so they don’t bother clearing the steps. I have another one of the main staircase that I will load for you some time, I have always been frightened of allowing a service like that access to my system but what do I know? You are welcome sis.
