Segway Tour

View of the Gateway Arch

Segway tour of the Downtown area of St. Louis...very cool.
Just a small sample of the great locations we were able to see.

A statue of an Olympic Runner from STL

NOT a parabola!


The fountains in front of Union Station

More fountains

Fun math facts on the Gateway Arch:
1. The shape of the arch is not a parabola but is an inverted weighted catenary.
2..The cross sections of the legs of the arch are equilateral triangles
3. The height and width (at the base) of the arch is 630 feet - the tallest steel monument in the world.
