St. Louis Zoo and Art Museum, Part V

I really had no idea that the zoo and the art museum were so insanely good. My favorite exhibit at the St. Louis Zoo were the hippos, but the elephants and the Asian sun bears were very entertaining too.

Then there was the St. Louis Art Museum, with master artists on exhibit from all over the world in all time periods. I nearly missed seeing the Andy Goldsworthy installation – thank God I stumbled onto it looking for the coffee shop!

We had a good St. Louis Italian meal, slept well, and drove all the way home on Saturday, getting home at about 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, with one major stop in New Harmony, Indiana. I wish that we had spent more time there because it was a fascinating town for history and art. We had no idea; we were just looking for a diner.

Okay, that’s it for that trip! On to the next!
