At the base:
Beneath the Arch is a wonderful museum. They have some movies about the Arch and about the Louis & Clark expedition. It's also where you go to get tickets to go up into the Arch itself. To get into the museum, you go through a security checkpoint, which might take a while, but it's worth the wait.
Here are some cool photos (taken by Melissa) of different angles of the Arch:
|It looks so thin, but that's really an illusion.|
|Looks sort of like a Mobius Strip.|
This last shot (below) is the same as above, just zoomed in so that you can see the windows at the top - those little black rectangles. That's where we'll be going in the next entry.
