Day 07

Date: 05/23/2006

Left the KOA and went to the Waffle House for breakfast, BIG mistake! Drove back into St. Louis to the Gateway Arch. Went up to the top of the arch and took pictures. After the arch we went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Walked around the gardens and checked out an exhibit of blown glass by Dale Chihuly it was quite impressive. The botanical gardens are way to big to see in the few hours we spent there, but we wanted to get back on the road, so we did. From St. Louis we went north on Hwy 61 until we got to Keokuk Iowa. We are staying at the Hickory Haven Campground. At the campground Marilyn spotted a turtle walking toward one of the two ponds and I took it's picture.
