Retracing Lewis & Clark's Expedition---On a Cereal Box-- Part 2

This is one of the road trips I would like to make one of these days, even if much of the rivers have changed and often you go miles without seeing a river. I would also like to do the Natchez Trace and Oregon Trail.


CELEBRATE LEWIS AND CLARK

Thanks to the National Park Service, state agencies, and the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, the route of the expedition can be followed from St. Louis to the Pacific Ocean. You can honor the trail by camping along or visiting some portion of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail.


HERE ARE SOME SIGHTS YOU CAN SEE AND VISIT

** Visit the Lewis and Clark State Park in Onawa, Iowa, which has a replica of the Discovery, the keelboat they used.

** Explore the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and see reconstructed Fort Mandan in Washburn, North Dakota.

** Camp at the Missouri Headwaters State Park near Bozeman, Montana, where Sacagawea was captured by Hidatsa Indians, and where three rivers merge to form the Missouri River. In Billings, Montana, find Clark's signature carved on Pompey's Pillar.
