As they say, good connections can get you really high. In my case, my very good connections (thanks Gene!) got me to a very unique place, through a very secret room and password protected access to the roof of 15th story high building in a downtown of St. Louis. What a panorama!
If you would expect a plain roof with a view everywhere, you would be surprised as myself. You can see at the bottom of this article, there is actually another 2 story high wall, and you really have to make an effort (and stay in a very uncomfortable position for more than an hour!) to get THE view. But as usual in such situations, it was worth it, would you agree?
This panorama I would recommend to click through and enjoy in a full view. And are you also one of those out of St. Louis asking, what is so beautiful about bunch of skyscrapers, ugly industrial zone and a highway going through?
Well, I would agree, not really “the most inspiring downtown”, as I always say. But all those FROM St. Louis would tell you that two major landmarks at the picture above make the difference. The Arch and home of the recent World champions (world? really?! ;), Cardinal’s Busch stadium.
And few others, meant more for a documentation purpose and enriching my “high connection” story.
And one patriotic at the very end. There is a huge flag at the top of the building, quite well weathered I have to say. So just before packing and leaving after the sunset I couldn’t resist not to take this photo against a perfectly colored dusky sky.
