When I"m around in the nicer months, I will walk the park...or one of the bridge paths.... I love walking over the Mississippi. It's interesting that I am in the heart of this mid-sized urbanopolis but feel so alone (in a good way) surrounded by all these cities. That feeling is very unique, to be in the heart of the metro and to be alone surrounded by the St. Louis skyline, the Wood River/Shell skyline, the Granite City/Mill Skyline and North County. It's interesting to be surrounded around all of that, but yet feel so alone in the heart of a metro area.
