On the Road: Following in the Footsteps of Lewis and Clark from Missouri to Oregont -
Lewiston Overnight Visit
Follow in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark as you cross seven states on a journey of discovery. Study a wealth of history, culture, geography, and ecology as you retrace their trail from St. Louis, Missouri to the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon. Field trips to historic sites, hands-on examination of maps, journals and artifacts, museum excursions, extensive lectures, and living history presentations bring the expedition alive. Begin in St. Louis by visiting the Museum of Westward Expansion. Set forth from the outpost of St. Charles up the Missouri River into the Dakotas. Examine a keelboat and study relationships between the explorers and Native Americans. Discover Fort Mandan and the Knife River Villages. Cross the Bitterroot Mountains to Nez Perce territory, view the Canoe Camp, and study Columbia River ecology. Trace the final difficult miles along the river to reach the Pacific Ocean. Explore reconstructed Fort Clatsop and examine native plants identified by Lewis.
