The grand staircase was built by the WPA and was part of a recreational area on the Missouri River.

The WPA did some really good and long-lasting stonework back then. This is very nice looking.

The structure is in excellent shape considering its age. A few cracked stones here and there, but not many.

Hopefully it will hold up another 100 years. Amazing workmanship.

Very grandiose.
Looks better in person.

That is just beautiful! Just the beauty of it makes me want to climb up. :)
I is a workout to climb. There are a few terraces to rest and enjoy.

Thanks! The first time was in August in the morning so sun was at a good place. The second time was in Oct afternoon and a challenge to shoot with the sun position. I was hoping to see more Fall colors.
