We took our bikes along when we visited St. Louis and really enjoyed riding through this beautiful park.

So glad they saved this land after the World's Fair. Strolling about, even on a miserably windy and cold day, was so enjoyable. St. Louis has a real gem here.

Just drove around here to go to the zoo, but it was sold out on reservations. Neat place to drive around and took some pics.
