Visit to the Jewel Box

We finally made it over to the Jewel Box in Forest Park to find out what it was all about.  We’d driven past it a boatload of times to get to the zoo, one oJewel Boxf the museums, the boat house, the World’s Fair Pavilion, and other parts of the park.  Yet just about every time we tried to stop, the place was closed.  Luckily, this time we checked the hours before checking the place out…even though we still arrived 15 minutes before they closed.

It’s basically a bunch of tropical and seasonal flora showcased within interesting metal and glass architecture, but the atmosphere of the place is calming, peaceful, and quiet.  It is very well done.  We visited just before close, which means in Winter that the Sun’s about to set.  The splash of light and shadows added a bit of a finale to our brief visit…
