Hermann, Missouri

We ended up with a perfect May day to take a 3 mile walk with our cameras around Hermann.

R was fascinated by the iron crosses that the German blacksmiths made for St. George Cemetery.

We also got a kick out of this staircase which, on paper for the original city plan, was supposed to be Mozart Street. But these steps are all that exist of the one block that was way too steep to join the two sections of the road. A staircase was the only option. I imagine kids and parishioners still use it, though, since St. George church and school sit on the top of this hill. R took this photo.
