On our first day in St. Louis we were facing some unpredictable weather, so we got up early, dressed comfortably and headed to the free Laumeier Sculpture Park for an outdoor hike among some creative, amusing and whimsical sculpture.

There were cicadas everywhere and if you looked close, you could see the ground moving in spots and hundreds of bugs hiding on the bottom of leaves!
The park was surprisingly large with lots of wandering paths and trails – some paved and some just woodchips. Thankfully, the park map helped us find all the far-flung pieces and included detailed information about many works.
