In August, we were fortunate enough to be able to go visit my Aunt’s house for the solar eclipse. She lives in Missouri and her house fell right in the path of the total eclipse. Since we were traveling so far we decided to make more of a trip of it, and enjoyed some of the sites.
The Gateway Arch was at the top of my list of places to visit. We decided the view was enough, and that we didn’t want to go up inside of it. Richard found a great park across the river to go to for the view. He also offered to take us to the St Louis Zoo, which was amazing. The had an incredible butterfly house, which fell right in with our science studies.
It was fantastic to be able to just step outside to watch the eclipse. We were able to go in and out through out the afternoon, whenever we wanted. We were able to avoid the heat, and have a fantastic view with no crowds.
All in all, time with Aunt Kathy was Caitlyn’s favorite part of the trip.
