Panoramas in the Parks

.
National and State Parks and Monuments offer great opportunities for panoramic photography (QTVR and otherwise). I have assembled this collection from our travels around the USA.

I have organized them by alphabetically by state and park name.

MISSOURI

Jefferson Gateway Arch National Monument
Downtown St Louis

VR Panorama taken inside the observation deck at the top of the Jefferson Arch.
It was handheld (I didn't take my tripod in the elevator) so it is a little rough. ('09)

Route 66 State Park
Townsite of Times Beach (west of St Louis)

Route 66 passes in front of the visitor center for the MO Route 66 State Park west of St Louis.
It was originally a road house that was taken over by the goverment as offices during the
Times Beach dioxin superfund cleanup. It now houses a gift shop and a nice museum that covers
the entire Times Beach story and other local history. ('07)

A view from the Route 66 bridge in MO Route 66 State Park. It was recently reduced to
a single lane of traffic due to the state imposing a load restriction on it. ('07)
Update: MO-DOT has closed the bridge and plans on removing it. ('10)

Under the west end of the Route 66 bridge in MO Route 66 State Park. Just off of the west end a spur
doubles back on the north side and comes under the 66 bridge and the interstate bridges to the south.
There are hiking trails and an equestrian area here. ('07)

At the west end of MO Route 66 State Park where Route 66 is cut by the interstate and a rail line.
The parking area is for people enjoying walking/jogging/biking or driving the circuit through the
remains of the City of Times Beach. It was quite active while I was there, especially considering
that it was early morning on an October day. ('07)
