We have explored most of the Missouri from it's headwaters to Great Falls. Great fishing and floating. Day trips or I hope someday to run the full length to the Mississippi.

The significance of the Missouri River is unparalleled in American History. Lewis and Clark, trappers, traders, Indian dug out canoes, Paddle Steamers, modern camping, fishing, boating etc. It thrills me overtime I see this river.

When we went to see if Gates of the Mountain was open for the year (it wasn't) we saw the Missouri. We wondered what pioneers and explorers must have thought when they reached such a lovely place.
