Sept 21- Walk the Grand Center Arts Area

A walk in the Grand Center area. Grand Center Information
Meet at the The Contemporary Art Museum, 3750 Washington Blvd

If you park at a meter, make sure you read when payment is required.  On Washington from the museum going west and on the cross street Spring there are no meters.

See the following landmarks and more:
CRAFT ALLIANCE IN GRAND CENTER
THE PULITZER FOUNDATION FOR THE ARTS
THE SHELDON ART GALLERIES
The new developments in the old GASLIGHT SQUARE area
ST LOUIS UNIVERSITY
CONTINENTAL LIFE BUILDING
FOX THEATRE
ST LOUIS CATHEDRAL

What to bring:
- WATER – THIS IS IMPORTANT ALL YEAR LONG AND ESPECIALLY IN THE WARMER MONTHS. WE WILL USUALLY BE OUT FOR AT LEAST 1 ½ HOURS AND THAT IS TOO LONG TO GO WITHOUT REPLENISHING THE LIQUIDS THAT YOU WILL BE BURNING WHILE WALKING. – I AVOID DRINKING CAFFEINATED BEVERAGES BEFORE WALKING. THEY DRY ME OUT AND MAKE ME HAVE TO URINATE MORE. THE ARE A LOT OF GOOD ARTICLES ABOUT “effects of caffeine and exercise” ON THE INTERNET OR ASK YOU DOCTOR.
- Dress in layers (not sure what the weather will do). The top couple of layers should be easily unbuttoned or unzipped to allow easy ventilation. Wear a hat.
- I recommend broken in hiking shoes over Tennis shoes. A lot of the trails are over loose gravel and dirt and the treads on the hiking boots work much better.
- Snacks – EAT LIGHTLY BEFORE THE WALK AND BRING A POWER BAR OR SNACK TO MUNCH ON DURING THE WALK.

All hikers/walkers should be at least 18 years old.

If you are a beginner, I placed a file called Walking Beginner in the Files tab to the left.

Meetup Donation: Meetup charges me $72 every six months to have the Walking site. If you would like to donate $1 at the walks, it will be appreciated.

    I somehow got double-booked - sorry! This sounds like a great exploration and I'm sorry to miss it.
