‪From Missoula Montana, we drove the through Lolo Pass on Hwy 12. It was beautiful, but smoky from the wild fires. In Idaho, we continued on the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway into Washington, where we experienced more fires and then into Oregon, driving along the Columbia River. The rivers, gorges, mountains and trees were amazing. We stopped many times to pick up information and read historical markers. My husband just finished reading "Undaunted Courage"' so it was like having my own travel guide! Yesterday we arrived at Astoria, Oregon where the Columbia River runs into the Pacific. Today we enjoyed the beautiful Pacific Coast, after an amazing week of following the trail they forged. I am so happy that all this information is made available. I feel like I have experienced lots of history!‬

‪I spent Wednesday, April 1 through Friday, April 3, 2009, following the Lewis and Clark Trail in Montana. Starting early in the morning in Missoula, I drove over the MacDonald Pass of the Continential Divide in a snow storm, and stoped for a brief tour of the State Capital at Helena.

I began following the Trail at the the Gateway to the Rocky Mountains, near Helena, Mt, traveling along Route 12. Lots of overnight camp sites are marked, but some have been loss due to water impoundments. At Townsend, I tried, unsuccessfully, to find the Crimson Clifts. Lunch at the Belly Deli, locally made Polish sausage. At Townsend, I headed east on Route 12 into the Big Sky country and then across the Bridger Range to Bozeman, where I got on I-90 and drove to Three Forks. Traveled 372 miles that day.

Spent the night at the Sacajawea Hotel, a 1910'ish wooden frame hotel which has some nice finishes on the interior. Good service and a quiet room. Dinner at the Willow Springs Saloon, a few miles away. Speciality was pork short ribs, and afterwards, wished I had chosen a local steak.

That evening and the next morning, toured the Three Forks State Park, where the Missouri divides into the Gallatin, Madison and Jefferson Rivers. Lewis and Clark followed the Jefferson towards the western mountains. Coming from Virginia, I was amazed at how wide, flat and calm all of the rivers in the wide valleys were where. Rough water occured only in the moutainous terrain.

From Three Forks, I drove through the country side on Route 41 pass the Parker Farm Homestead -- a rough and desolute spot, to Dillon. Good Museum at Dillon. More Lewis and Clark stops along the way. At Dillon, lunch at Papa T's -- good local beef hamburger, definitely not urban-quality fast food. At Dillon, Lewis and Clark continued up the Beaverhead Creek to the Lemhi Pass, which is a dirt road and clsoed to traffic during the snowy winters. So I took a detour from their trail.

I left Dillon and drove on Route 278 through another snow storm to Wisdom, for a stop at the Nez Perce Indian "Battle of the Big Hole" National Histric Site.

Crossed into the Bitteroot Mountains where the Chief Joseph and Lost Trail Passes run together. Spent the night at the family owned Lost Trail Hot Springs Resort off of Route 93, right on the edge of the ridge line that Lewis and Clark hiked down from the pass to the Bitteroot Valley. Soaked off a bit of car driving fatigue in the resort's swimming pool that was fed by the local hot spring.. Had a nice steak for dinner. It was between season, and I was the only guest, so I had the place to myself. Comfortable and serviceable room.

Drove 204 miles that day.

The next day, I crossed into Idaho on Route 93, to follow the Lewis and Clark Trail from the westend side of the Lemhi Pass, down the South Fork of the Salmon River, and then up the North Fork of the Salmon River back into Montana. The two forks come together at a wide spot in the road forming the Salmon River. But Lewis and Clark judged that Salmon River Canyon to be too dangerous, and opted to cross the mountains at Lost Trail Pass on foot, with horse provided by Sacajawea and her Indian tribe.

Once in the Bitterroot Valley, Lewis and Clark proceeded down the Bitterroot River parallel to Route 93 to where Route 12 heads west towards the Lolo Pass back into Idaho.

My final stop that day was at the Historic Fort Missoula Museum. I spent tha night in Missoula, having driven 290 miles that day.

My trip ended the following day, when I boarded my airplane home.‬
