Loop Trolley 002

University City’s Loop Trolley. This is an antique streetcar recently installed in the the University City “Loop” area and terminates in Forest Park by the Missouri History Museum (in the background).

Bridge in Forest Park

Walking around St. Louis’ Forest Park, you can find scenes like this.

A walk in Forest Park

This is an interesting intersection in St. Louis’ Forest Part where walking paths, a foot bridge and stream intersect. This time of year the flowers start to bloom making it a popular place to be.

7,000 Flags

7,000 flags flying over Art Hill in St. Louis; Forest Park. This is one of several flag memorials in front of the the Art Museum displayed over the past few years. These displays have memorialized those that have fallen during terror attacks or fighting terrorists.

Park Benches

The winter of 2019 has been particularly snowy giving St. Louisans beautiful vistas and icy roads. These benches overlook Forest Park’s Grand Basin and in the upper right hand corner of the photo you can see people sledding on Forest Park’s famous Art Hill. Any time of year, this is a popular place.
