Yes, I was just as surprised as you are to learn that the Gateway Arch is a National Park, but it is, and I have had the fortunate pleasure of being in its presence for 15 minutes. The stainless steel structure bends its massive self on the banks of the Mississippi River and surrounds itself with the wasteland, excuse me, the city of St. Louis.
I don't like being squeezed into enclosed metal and then made to stare at a rundown city, so I didn't go up in it. I merely took an obligatory picture, and we got out of dodge.
