Unexpected views in the parking lot: a gorgeous mural on the wall of the garden storage building (did not find the artists' names anywhere), a parking lot that needs mowing...

Gateway Arch, St. Louis, MO

THE Arch (implied), St. Louis, MO  (25 Jan 2014)

This was the second time I visited; I am always delighted by its beauty, and 
astounded by engineering feat that the monument is.
