What's with the median here? LEDs?

The first shot was stunning. St. Louis is a very beautiful city, I enjoyed visiting earlier this summer.

Grant's Farm is a historic farm in St. Louis, Missouri.
The Farm is now owned by the Busch family, who used to own Anheuser-Busch brewing company. The farm is filled with many animals.
The farm also contains a cabin built by Grant, which is the only remaining structure hand-built by a U.S. president prior to assuming the office, which is the photo below.

Grant's Farm is a real treasure. There was (is?) some concern for its continued existence when InBev bought out AB. I'm not sure who owns how much these days but like Busch Gardens and Sea World, InBev had no interest in keeping it. Most likely it's owned and operated by the Busch family like you said.

Anyway, really enjoying these pics! Thanks!

Cool photos. Grant's Farm is in a suburb of St. Louis, not the city proper.

Very nice pictures. Thanks for this beautiful compilation of shots from St Louis.

I´ve liked, specially, all those taken by winter. I didn´t think it snowed so much in St Louis. I´ve liked the contrasts between summer and winter in your pics.

Those views from the Arch are stunning. I´d like to visit St Louis and to climb to the top of the Arch.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!
