Vernal Equinox at Cahokia's Woodhenge

March 20 is the date of this year's Vernal Equinox. That's one of two days in the year when day and night are of equal length and the path of the sun splits the heavens.

It's also a day when people gather over at Cahokia Mounds to witness the event from inside Cahokia's Woodhenge.

At least that's what one of the regulars gathered at Iron Barley told me last night...

Cahokia is on the UN list of World Heritage sites. Now there's talk of adding the Gateway Arch to the same list.

There's all sorts of cool and creative stuff going on around St. Louis.

What a great idea for civic pride to make the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial a World Heritage Site! How do we make that happen?
