Like most neighborhoods in St. Louis, there is a lot to photograph within a short walk of my front door. As a colonial city (that’s right, STL was founded during the time of the 13 colonies), there is more than two and a half centuries of history bottled up in this city, and that is if you are only counting since the time of French settlement. It is no wonder then that a short stroll can reveal countless insights into the idiosyncratic nature of this town’s architecture, natural landscape , and people.
One of my family’s favorite places to hike is Lone Elk Park, a wildlife management area for elk and bison within a very short drive from downtown St. Louis. Combined with a visit to the World Bird Sanctuary located right next door, this can be a full day’s worth of free fun with fur and feathers.
“Interludes” are the posts in-between the posts that this site focuses on, and provide me with an opportunity to share things that I find interesting. They are not archived like the core posts.
