Our Nauvoo Trip
Our long awaited family vacation this summer was spent in Nauvoo. We actually flew to St. Louis Missouri first and spent some time at the Westward Expansion Arch (or Jefferson Memorial Arch), in St. Louis. We learned that the Arch was 73 stories high and I was chatting with a man and his wife from New York and they were claiming that the empire state building was approximately 90 stories high. Rachael was not extremely thrilled about going up in the arch at first. 1st 2 pictures are of our family inside the Arch and the next is some of us coming down the steps at the base of the Arch. 3rd picture is Geoff and Lilly checking out the Mississippi River, it was flowing quite well. As you can see in the last picture the river was high enough to cover up most of this Statue!
