Derek, Mike and Alex spend a
chilly, sunny Saturday afternoon tooling around St. Louis in their Dakotas.
Joining us were Derek's finacee Emily and her daughter Samantha, as well as
Emily's friend-slash-babysitter whose name I can't recall.
Nothing like good ol' Dodge Trucks! How's that for flying your colors?
Derek and Emily with the really sharp faux R/T. Those stripes are done
with actual Viper paint!
Here's Mike and his nice sixer, in from Waterloo, IL.
Here's Alex with his dirty SLT. Derek took the picture... can you tell
he's too tall by that angle?
Here's the lineup at the base of the Gateway Arch. My heart wells with
Ahhhhh...... what a view. And the Arch is OK too!
So we decided to head to the top of the arch. Can you say
claustrophobia? From left, Mike, Emily, Derek (or at least his forehead) and
Samantha wait for me to cram in there with them. Em's friend is wedged in there
Sam loved the tram ride to the top of the Arch.....!
Here's what Dakotas look like from 635 feet up. Can you spot them?
Here's a hint.... go back to the last photo and try again!
What a view!
Time to get out of here... say so long to the Mighty Mississippi!
It was a good day.
Well not quite the end.
Here are my (Mike M) pics. Unlike Alex's which were taken with a digital camera kindly provided by his employeer, mine were taken with 35mm and scanned in. The ones with the arch didn't turn out too good, but the others are alright.
