Laumeier Sculpture Garden
We're in St Louis and it's a blast so far. We arrived about 2:00 in the afternoon and met our daughter and headed to the Laumeier Sculpture Garden. It's located about 30 minutes from where we are staying at Union Station and I highly recommend it. By the way, the weather is increadible - nothing like we are used to in the northwest.
The garden is on nearly 100 acres on a hill side. The terrain is gently rolling and there are asphalt paths to most of the pieces. Almost anyone can get around and see the area. It's gorgeous. Allow yourself about two hours to walk the area.
Today, we head to Cahokia Mounds. It is the largest Indian mounds in North America. Mackie and I have a little archeological interest in us. We've visited ruins all around the US and Mexico over the years and are fascinated by previous civilizations.
