midwestern bugs

This little critter managed to make it to the top of the Compton Hill Water Tower in St. Louis.  The tower (not the lady bug) dates to 1898 and is one of only seven similar towers remaining in the United States today.  Apparently when I agreed to climb up the 198 steps, I forgot that heights and spiral staircases make me queasy.  It must have been the good humor and intense enthusiasm of the volunteers staffing the place (as well as the $5 that I paid for the privilege to climb) that got me up those steps to the stunning view at the top.
