Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, Sacagawea and Us

This morning we left Bozeman and headed to Great Falls following the Missouri River most of the way.

According to Wikipedia -Great Falls takes its name from the series of five waterfalls in close proximity along the upper Missouri Riverbasin that the Lewis and Clark Expedition had to portage around over a ten-mile stretch; the effort required 31 days of arduous labor during the westward leg of their 1805-06 exploration of the Louisiana Purchase and to thePacific Northwest Coast of the Oregon Country.

We visited the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center and got a better idea of the trials and tribulations the expedition went through.

Weather continues to be beautiful…sunny and in the 80’s.

Not sure where our expedition will lead tomorrow….stay tuned.
