Winter pilgrimage to St. Louis includes ‘The Way of Light’ at Belleville shrine

The famous Gateway Arch, a National Park Service monument which is 630 feet tall, welcomes visitors to St. Louis. Windows enclose a small viewing area at the top of the popular tourist destination on the west bank of the Mississippi River. Named for King Louis IX of France, St. Louis is best known for being the Gateway City. (Criterion file photo by Brandon A. Evans)
