It was wet and muddy out there this year, but still a nice day to enjoy being outside.
Last May, you may remember we visited Cahokia Mounds. Here is the blog post I wrote about it:
On that trip, we wanted to climb the biggest mound, Monk's Mound, but it was too hot that day. So, we finally got the chance to go back in cooler weather. Here are a few photos we took when we went on October 20th. It was a windy day, but it was nice to have the sun shining.
|There were 2 sets of stairs. Here is JJ on his way up the first set.|
|A view of the second set of stairs.|
|David's legs were hurting after climbing the first set of stairs, so he took a break. You can see him sitting on the bench.|
|JJ and I met David as he finally reached the top.|
|A view of the parking lot from the top of the mound. My mom and EL were waiting there.|
|I zoomed in a bit, and you can see Mom standing next to the van. We waved at her.|
|A good view of St. Louis from the top of the mound.|
|David and me, sitting on a bench at the top. St. Louis is in the background.|
|The wind was really bothering my ears, so I went back down before the guys did.|
|Back at the van, I could see the guys standing at the top of the mound. You can barely see them in this picture. There are two dots to the left of the big tree.|
|I zoomed in again, and was able to see them better.|
It was a fun little adventure, and definitely good exercise!
