Walking through this replica of the fort gives a great perspective of how great an accomplishment it was for the first explorers. Very good museum and movie presentations at the park visitor center.

I was really looking forward to visiting since I'd read two books about the Lewis and Clark Expedition (there's SO much more to it than we were taught in school!) I highly recommend reading "Undaunted Courage" by Stephen Ambrose before your visit. The 33 men...More
