A Bridge in Forest Park

I'm told Forest Park is the seventh largest urban park in the United States. Heather and I have spent time walking the trails. But last Saturday we decided to explore intensely the area of the Park near Grand and Union.

It was a beautiful autumn day and the colors were beautiful. There was lots to see.



But, I was captivated by a particular bridge.











 



It is a joy to make a friend.

  1. Beautiful pictures Keith. They look very serene and peaceful.

    You always have such a great eye for the composition of photos.

    1. It was very peaceful when we were there. The next day was the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. I suspect it it was much different then.

      I'm glad you enjoy the photos. I certainly enjoy your comments. Thanks for being such a faithful respondent.

  2. Keith:

    just found out that Forest Park was the site of the 1904 World's Fair so you may have some historic structures there. It's nice to have such a park in the middle of your City

    1. Yes, there are number of building left from the Fair. It is a true treasure. Both the Art Museum and the History Museum were from that time. There, also, is a giant flight cage that is still used in the Zoo. And, some others.

    1. I'm delighted you stopped by and enjoyed "my walk". I admit your recent post "More Tales From The Trails" was part of the inspiration for this post. I loved it.

  4. That is a magnificent park. The Google image search shows the jaw dropping elegance of the park. Here's a secret- trade you some of our forests for your Forest.

    Your photos really represent some of that elegance. I hope we get to see more of the park!

    1. I suspect you will see more of the Park. Heather was involved with this: http://www.dartstlouis.com/ Her dart landed at the intersection of Grand and Union. This was the reason for our being so intensely exploring this area. Eventually, her photo will be up for viewing and voting. I suspect it will be after the "Happy Hour" event on November 8th. This was her first year of participating.

      I will make it a point to do spend some more time in the Park. You are correct it is a elegant place. It also has wetlands and the last of the virgin growth forest in the area. Like all jewels, it is many faceted.
