“discover the window to the west”

Between May 1804 and September 1806, 31 men, one woman, and a baby traveled from the plains of the Midwest to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. They called themselves the Corps of Discovery. In their search for a water route to the Pacific Ocean, they opened a window into the west for the young United States. The Lewis and Clark Expedition is more than the story of two men. It is the story of many: individuals and groups, military men and scientists, a president and a slave, women and men, French-speaking boatmen and American Indians. It is a story of loss and hope. It is a story of changes that began in 1803 and that continue today The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail is a route across the United States commemorating the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804 to 1806. It is part of the National Trails System of the United States. It extends for some 3,700 miles from Wood River, Illinois to the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon. The trail is administered by the National Park Service, but sites along the trail are managed by federal land management agencies, state, local, tribal, and private organizations. The trail is not a hiking trail, but provides opportunities for hiking, boating and horseback riding at many locations along the route. The trail is the second longest of the 23 National Scenic and National Historic Trails. It passes through portions of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

This is actually the Visitor's Center for the Lewis and Clark National Trail, which we stopped by to visit while on our way to the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. It's a relatively quiet center, but it was ideal for our 7-year-old to become a Junior Ranger at since it will help us avoid the chaos of him trying later in the summer at a larger national park. The park rangers were super nice, helpful, and informative, and they really went out of their way to make sure ALL of my kids (7, 3, and 2) had a good time, which I especially appreciated.
