Welcome to Round 7 of ABC Wednesday. The meme was started by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt, and people from all over the world come together to play and share their entries. Each week word(s) beginning with the designated letter are selected and illustrate through a photo, poem or prose. My twist on the meme is selecting unusual words and pairing them with photos of familiar things in my world. I’ll be pulling words from sources here, here and, of course, here.
Let’s get unusual.

The infamous St. Louis Arch, Gateway to the West. It’s a 630 foot tall monument to Westward Expansion that sits on the bank of the Mississippi River. Construction began Feb 12, 1963 and was completed on Oct. 28, 1965. Built out of stainless steel, the monument cost 13 millions dollars to build. On a clear day, you can see about 30 miles when looking out from the viewing platform at the top.
For the rest, we head back to the zoo.
