“One of the world's great natural wonders”
Reviewed 28 August 2007

Historian Stephen Ambrose wanted the White Cliffs of the Missouri to be made a national park, and it's easy to see why. This incredible stretch of the Missouri River has been designated "Wild and Scenic," and a boat or canoe ride takes you through miles of incredible rock formations, worn down by time into fantastical shapes that resembles ancient fortresses, Roman columns, and towering rock walls.

But it's hard to imagine the transformation to the land that a national park would bring, because as it stands the White Cliffs are one of the most remote and inaccessible areas in the lower 48 states. It's well worth seeking out an outfitter to help you take to the river and see this incredible natural wonder. The day we went (with Missouri River Canoe Company), we had an amazing day and the river practically to ourselves. So quiet that you could hear the beating of the birds' wings overhead.

This is one of the few areas that still appears exactly as Lewis & Clark saw it in 1805. Take a day or a week and see the White Cliffs.
