window views 19 -- top of the arch

Welcome to Window Views, a thursday meme dedicated to all those architectural delights that allow us to bring the outside in while adding character to the structures they are in.

I suspect that the most talked about windows in St. Louis are those at the top of the Gateway Arch. The reason I say that is because it takes a lot of nerve and a small adventure to get up to where they are. Once there you have the entire city, part of the Mississippi River and a good size chunk of Illinois spread out below you.

On our last trip to the Arch I took these photos of the Old Salt looking our the window and his window view of the Illinois side of the river.

For my visitors from across the pond the first photo is the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. If you enlarge the second photo you will be able to see the small windows at the top.

To join the fun or or check out the window views posted by others visit our host Mary t at Window Views.


  1. When I first saw that last photo I was convinced it must have been taken out of the cabin window of a plane coming into land. That is some arch you have there.

  2. how cool! I'd love to look out that window. If you’d like to drop by and see my sepia scene & window views, they are here. thanks!

  3. WOW ... what a spectacular view from the top of the arch! I've missed a few weeks but did get my act together this morning and posted at Sacred Ruminations ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  4. That IS a high arch! And it looks like a small space to be in to look down... :)

  5. I had no idea that the arch had windows! What fantastic views.
    Sunny :)

  6. It was rather interesting for me to read that blog. Thanx for it. I like such topics and everything connected to them. I would like to read a bit more on that blog soon.


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
