United Flight 6199
Katherine and I flew out to Colorado for the week. While we were waiting for our gate checked luggage, I decided to pull my camera out and take some photos.

This is a place we didn't know existed until one day we drove by it trying to get to a different attraction in Wisconsin. While driving to Potosi we drove through Dicekyville and saw "The Grotto". We had no idea what it waws and thought nothing of it. I then drove by it again for a business trip and saw it in a little more detail. That's when I looked it up and told Katherine that we should go.

Katherine and I wanted to go see if the eagles were active. We had about an hour between grocery shopping and lunch so we decided to go down to the river and see what was happening. We counted at least 10 bald eagles and maybe one more in the hour that we were down there. We started down at Lock and Dam #11 and then drove up to the top of Eagle Point Park to look down on the birds.

Downtown St. Louis
Katherine and I went on a short weekend trip down to St. Louis. We were hesitant on going because the arch was under construction, but after seeing some online web cams of the current construction we decided to drive the 5 hours and spend the weekend seeing the city.

Missouri Botanical Garden
One of the other things that Katherine and I went to in our limited time was the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis. They were having a special event, the orchid show. That was the first thing we went through and it was incredible with thousands of orchads

St. Louis Zoo
Katherine and I went to the St. Louis Zoo. It was free admission (although you had to pay for parking), but it was a really great zoo! It was the first nice day of the year (so it was packed) but it was still a blast!
