Here’s what it’s like inside St. Louis' Gateway Arch
We took a trip to St. Louis’ Gateway Arch — the tallest man-made monument in the US. The arch is 630 feet high and its foundations are about 60 feet deep. It's made of 142 stainless steel sections, concrete, and structural steel.
The monument honors Thomas Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase and St. Louis' role in westward expansion of the US.
It's often called the gateway to the west.

MUST SEE! Mount St. Helens - Stunning 4K Drone video - 37 years, May, 18, 1980 Volcanic Eruption
SUBSCRIBE HERE!! Long before it became an active volcano, Mt.Saint Helens was always a favorite place for us to go as kids. Spirit Lake was an amazing place to canoe, and the views of the mountain were spectacular. Today, Mount Saint Helens shows a new kind of beauty, and is known as a national volcanic monument. I hope you enjoy this spectacular footage of the mountain my family has enjoyed so much over the years.
Footage was shot with a 4K camera mounted to an Autel Robotics Drone. Johnston's Ridge Observatory is located in what is believed to be the exact spot he was standing on that fateful day of May, 18, 1980. His words at 8:32am screamed over the radio, Vancouver, Vancouver, this is it! It sent chills up our spine as we listened from home. We were more than 30 miles away to the east, but the plume from the blast was immediately visible, and the sky filled with a dark cloud within moments. It was eerie to think that the voice of David Johnston was forever silent.
Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia: David Alexander Johnston (December 18, 1949 – May 18, 1980) was an American USGS volcanologist who was killed by the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington. A principal scientist on the USGS monitoring team, Johnston was killed in the eruption while manning an observation post 6 miles (10 km) away on the morning of May 18, 1980. He was the first to report the eruption, transmitting Vancouver! Vancouver! This is it! before he was swept away by a lateral blast. Despite a thorough search, Johnston's body was never found, but state highway workers discovered remnants of his USGS trailer in 1993.
Johnston's career took him across the United States, where he studied the Augustine Volcano in Alaska, the San Juan volcanic field in Colorado, and long-extinct volcanoes in Michigan. Johnston was a meticulous and talented scientist, known for his analyses of volcanic gases and their relationship to eruptions. This, along with his enthusiasm and positive attitude, made him liked and respected by many co-workers. After his death, other scientists lauded his character, both verbally and in dedications and letters. Johnston felt scientists must do what is necessary, including taking risks, to help protect the public from natural disasters. His work, and that of fellow USGS scientists convinced authorities to close Mount St. Helens to the public before the 1980 eruption. They maintained the closure despite heavy pressure to re-open the area; their work saved thousands of lives. His story became intertwined within the popular image of volcanic eruptions and their threat to society, and a part of volcanology's history. To date, Johnston, along with Harry Glicken, is one of two American volcanologists known to have died in a volcanic eruption.
Following his death, Johnston was commemorated in several ways, including a memorial fund established in his name at the University of Washington to fund graduate-level research. Two volcano observatories were established and named after him: one in Vancouver, Washington, and another on the ridge where he died. Johnston's life and death are featured in several documentaries, films, docudramas and books. Along with others who died during the eruption, Johnston's name is inscribed on memorials dedicated to their memory.

Elegant Resort-Style Estate in Bellevue, Washington
Presented by Brazen Sotheby's International Realty
For more information go to
This resort-like estate elegantly unfolds before your eyes as you drive down the street bordered by 100-foot tall Lombardy poplar trees, affectionately called Poplar Lane. You are warmly welcomed by a serpentine driveway leading uphill to a hidden formal entry and motor court, the house nestled into the hillside. Designed and built by a distinguished team of designers and contractors, this property is the masterpiece of two years of careful planning, and uncompromising vision. Seattle Landscape Architect, Brooks Kolb, began the project by working closely with renowned architect, Brandt Hollinger to locate a brand new home on a rare 3-acre site in the heart of Bellevue, Washington. His design retained the native feel of the site, preserving the dense tree cover of Douglas Fir, Vine Maple and Western Red Cedars. He also laid the foundation to perfectly orient the house, doors, windows, and the pool and tennis court to seamlessly maximize the sun exposure. With a goal towards a year-round bloom, he hand picked all of the plants and vegetation and strategically placed them throughout the 3-acre site creating a private, fun, resort-like feel with lots of gathering places. Hollinger, together with Doug Rasar Interiors, understood the owner's desire for a warm, welcoming, and relaxed feel, and created a home that exudes the essence of Ohana - the Hawaiian word for family. His design was inspired from his long-standing admiration of two English architects from the very early 20th century, both notable for their designs of country and manor houses. He used characteristics such as steep but hovering slate-clad hip roofs set atop fairly severe stucco and masonry walls, usually with large continuous groupings of windows, bays and bow windows and prominent chimneys. In addition, he incorporated the use of ornamentation and exuberant moldings and trims, both inside and out, that helped enrich the design, and also served to give the overall structure a scale that the owner could relate to and live comfortably in. He also used hidden elements such as a private front entry shielded from public view and only visible to visitors to the property, and a four-car parking garage that is concealed from the main facade of the house. The organization of the house was based on the clustering of adult/ more formal uses in one wing, and children/more utilitarian uses in the other. He decided to connect them with a hub consisting of a two-story grand entry and family activity spaces- big bold spaces that expressed the largeness of the house. This also gave him the opportunity to draw sunlight into the center of the house all throughout the day.

Bridge Of The Gods (Morning)
Take a look at the Bridge of the Gods, filmed in the morning. The Bridge of the Gods is a steel truss cantilever bridge that spans the Columbia River between Cascade Locks, Oregon and Washington. It is approximately 40 miles east of Portland, Oregon and 4 miles upriver from the Bonneville Dam. It currently serves as a toll bridge operated by the Port of Cascade Locks.
The bridge was built by the Wauna Toll Bridge Company of Walla Walla, Washington and opened in 1926 at a length of 1,127 feet. The higher river levels resulting from the construction of the Bonneville Dam required the bridge to be further elevated and extended to its current length of 1,856 feet.
The bridge is named after a famous geologic event also known as Bridge of the Gods (see below).
The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the Columbia River on the Bridge of the Gods and the lowest elevation of the trail is on this bridge.
This video was filmed during my move from Victorville, California to Post Falls, Idaho in October 2007.
Here's some info about the geologic event known as the Bridge of the Gods land bridge.
The original Bridge of the Gods was created during the eighteenth century by the Bonneville Slide, a major landslide which dammed the Columbia River, near present-day Cascade Locks, Oregon in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The river eventually removed it, but this event is remembered in local legends of the Native Americans as the Bridge of the Gods.
Approximately three hundred years ago a mountain to the north of the Columbia River underwent a large landslide, splitting in two and forming Table Mountain and Greenleaf Peak. The southern part slid down the mountain and blocked the Columbia Gorge close to modern-day Cascade Locks, Oregon forming a land bridge approximately 200 feet (60 m) high.
Early research concluded that the slide took place as early as 1100, but more recent research places it between 1670 and 1760, and suggests that it may have been linked to the 1700 Cascadia earthquake.
The following contains info about the famous Native American legend named Bridge of the Gods.
Native American lore contains numerous legends to explain the eruptions of Mount St. Helens and other volcanoes in the Cascade Volcanic Arc. The most famous of these is the Bridge of the Gods legend told by the Klickitats. In their tale, the chief of all the gods, Tyhee Saghalie and his two sons, Pahto (also called Klickitat) and Wy'east, traveled down the Columbia River from the Far North in search for a suitable area to settle.
They came upon an area that is now called The Dalles and thought they had never seen a land so beautiful. The sons quarreled over the land and to solve the dispute their father shot two arrows from his mighty bow; one to the north and the other to the south. Pahto followed the arrow to the north and settled there while Wy'east did the same for the arrow to the south. Saghalie then built Tanmahawis, the Bridge of the Gods, so his family could meet periodically.
When the two sons of the Saghalie fell in love with a beautiful maiden named Loowit, she could not choose between them. The two young chiefs fought over her, burying villages and forests in the process. The area was devastated and the earth shook so violently that the huge bridge fell into the river, creating the Cascades Rapids of the Columbia River Gorge.
For punishment, Saghalie struck down each of the lovers and transformed them into great mountains where they fell. Wy'east, with his head lifted in pride, became the volcano known today as Mount Hood and Pahto, with his head bent toward his fallen love, was turned into Mount Adams. The fair Loowit became Mount St. Helens, known to the Klickitats as Louwala-Clough which means smoking or fire mountain in their language (the Sahaptin called the mountain Loowit).
