Sometimes you forget to be a tourist in your own town. Then maybe you get an unexpected reminder. For me the reminder was in the form of birthday cakes. Specifically the Cakeway to the West, a celebration of the 250th birthday of St. Louis Missouri. There are 250 of these 4ft. tall cakes scattered throughout the St. Louis region. Here are snapshots of a few of them:
Cahokia Mounds, which is in Illinois.
I have a bunch more to see obviously if I want to see all 250 of them! It is a lot of fun to run into these cakes around town. These photos I have taken with my point and shoot or iPhone. In Photoshop I did a levels adjustment on a few of them and then sharpened them a bit. Have you ever played the tourist in your own town?
