123/365: Visit Your Arch (By Boat)

Mississippi River 2011-05-01 2 (Visit Your Arch)

Another view of the flooding on the Mississippi. The street under the Arch next to the river is completely covered. The water goes three or four steps up the grand staircase from the street to the base of the monument (we've seen much worse). I wouldn't plan a visit arriving by canoe, though. The current is wicked.

Today's picture on St. Louis Daily Photo is a lot more wet than this one.
