Go West X - Gateway Arch

Pedestrian Crossing Sign, Gateway Arch, Saint Louis, Missouri  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved

Gateway Arch is the tallest man-made monument in the U.S. (630 feet) and was built to commemorate our country's westward movement. American's urge to go West is deeply ingrained in our psyche since explorers and pioneers started the trend in the late 1700's.

So it is appropriately symbolic that the walking man on this sign
is under the arch,
on the go,
 and heading westward!
