SAINT PATS DAY AT THE ARCH

The Collinsville artifact show is on the same day as the St Patricks' day happiness....also a good opportunity to visit the gateway arch..

Well, at least visit the bottom half

Tip your monitor slightly and you can just make out the left leg and the top loop with sun reflecting..

Here's a nice skyshot ( with arch in the backround ) of a Hickory Ridge point that I found.

Unfortunately the ground fog hid the top of the arch AND the point.

Photobucket

An hour later the fog burned off.

Thousands of yrs from now archaeologists will have a tough time trying to figure out who's tomb this is;
THOUSANDS of visitors have made their mark. ( tip your monitor screen again )

How about this artist... done with a cordless drill

Not to be left out, I found that a CACHE RIVER point makes a fine scriber.. NB; when autographing monuments
never use your full name that can be traced, I just used " AUSTINDIGGERS .COM "

Last year at this same time of year the snow melt had the river up over this statue, note water mark on bridge abutment.

Here's Dad getting the youngster to climb the side of the arch while Mom takes a pic

Re: SAINT PATS DAY AT THE ARCH

For those that have never been to the arch it's hard to imagine how really big it is. Here's a proper scale to get a better idea of size......

Last gasp. final condition of the show trip souvenirs

Photobucket

Take special note of that big white Thebes...
I bought it cause the base was so impressive then bought a similar type flint tip. Trimmed the non matching edges with diamond bits

No modern fix for the classic Dalton,,thats a beauty just as is. ( beauty is in the eye of the beholder )
